Winter Berry Salad Wreath. Love this idea!
Prep time: 20 mins
Total time: 20 mins
1 head of Iceberg lettuce
4 cups mixed greens
1 cup spinach
2 bunches grapes
1 apple (chopped)
1 Pear (chopped and sliced for decoration)
6 Strawberries (2 whole for decorating the rest chopped)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzaoa cheese
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbsp diced fresh onion
1 tsp dijon mustard (Grey Poupon is what I used)
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
2/3 cup olive oil
Place iceberg lettuce around a round plate.
Top with mixed greens.
On both sides of “wreath” make a decoration with spinach leaves, then add bunches of grapes to each side, fanned pears and whole strawberries. Be as creative as you wish.
To the salad add chopped apples, pears, strawberries, blueberries, dried cranberries, cashews and crumbled gorgonzola cheese.
For dressing: Squeeze the juice of one lemon (1/2 cup) and pour into food processor or blender. Add honey, onion, dijon mustard, poppy seeds, and olive oil. Pulse until well blended. (You may double dressing recipe )
