A couple of years ago I bought a salad at the food coop where I sometimes shop. It was a little outside my comfort zone but I was at the beginning of broadening my horizons when it comes to food.
OH. MY. OH. MY I fell in love with it. They haven't made the salad since but I do make it quite often at home. And I make different variations depending upon what I have in the house. It's really a simple salad.
Salad greens, blue cheese and beets are the main ingredients. Sometimes I add shredded chicken if I have some in the freezer, sometimes I have a little red onion and walnuts if I have them on hand. The one thing it doesn't need is dressing. The juice from the beets mixes with the blue cheese and makes its own little dressing.
