Spinach and blue cheese salad

Recently we invited our new friends met in the US  for a dinner. In fact they are not American but Ukrainian, however they lived in Paris before coming there and become quite fussy about the food. We wanted at least try to meet expectations of their sophisticated taste ;)  They love seafood but how can I cook the food that I can’t even look at? :P

 We were wondering for a few days and finally composed a draft of recipe ;) Then we went to a shop to get the ingredients and… the initial recipe was changed significantly ;) However the final outcome was just amazing! I didn’t expect it to be soooo delicious :) I was trying hard not to eat all before the guests :P :P

Here is the recipe (it’s for 4 people):

  •  9.5 OZ (270g) of half and half blend of baby spinach and  baby lettuces (you can buy a ready mix)
  • 3/4 cup crumbed blue cheese
  • a medium jar of sun-dried tomatoes – chopped
  • 1/3 cup of chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup of green olives – halved
  • 1/2 cup of small marinated white onions – halved
  • 1/3 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp of Greek seasoning
  • all oil from sun-dried tomatoes
Mix all ingredients in a big bowl adding Greek seasoning and oil from sun-dried tomatoes. Serve immediately as lettuce tend to wilt very quickly.
×TIP Sometimes it’s better to have all ingredients prepared and mix them with lettuce and spinach just before eating. Yummie! :D

These little marinated onions were really sour! But it was a great characteristic ingredient in this salad.

Our friends really enjoyed this salad. It’s both sour and sweet with a characteristic blue cheese taste…mmm. We served it with grilled chicken breast and small butter potatoes. You must try this recipe! :)
