Berry Spring Salad

This could also be called a Berry Summer Salad - but its still Spring!
Spring greens tossed with Wisconsin Bleu Cheese (Gorgonzola), small slices
of red onion, and fresh blueberries.  I added some Craisins (aka dried
cranberries) for added color and added sweetness
My salad dressing of choice is Ken's Steak House Lite Raspberry
Walnut Vinaigrette.  This is a delicious low-fat and low-calorie dressing.
I like the way the raspberry flavor adds an additional berry taste.
This salad makes a nice and light side to our dinner tonight.
In lieu of a starch, I'm serving it along side halved cherry tomatoes
drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil with chopped fresh basil.
