Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ small red onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 8 cups assorted greens, cleaned and chilled
  •  cup crumbled, reduced-fat blue cheese (goat cheese can be substituted)
  •  cup each cleaned and chilled California Giant Raspberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries
  •  cup slivered almonds, roasted ( cup of pecans or walnuts can be substituted)

Directions:

  1. Combine the oil, onion, vinegar, honey, and hot sauce in a blender and puree. (The dressing can be made a day or two ahead of time, but bring it to room temperature before serving.)
  2. Prior to serving, pre-heat oven to 400°F. Roast the almonds for approximately 4 minutes at 400°F on a cookie sheet.
  3. While nuts are roasting combine the assorted greens in a large bowl. Toss with the room temperature dressing. Add the remaining ingredients (blue cheese and raspberries) except for the roasted almonds.
  4. Toss gently, then top with almonds. Serve immediately.
