I have made this salad several times and it is a wonderful summer salad. I have used Feta cheese but my favorite is crumbled Bleu cheese which I think tastes even better if you are a Bleu cheese lover like me. Very healthy recipe. Enjoy…I did!

This is a great recipe to sample all kinds of fruit. I have made this recipe for bridal showers and baby showers and also for elegant dinners.  I have added blueberries, blackberries and strawberries to this recipe and not only does it add a beautiful array of color but the flavors are awesome! Just to make this recipe extra special garnish with thinly sliced fresh mint. Enjoy…I did!

Lamberti Extra Dry Prosecco

My wife and I love serving this salad as part of family brunch.  As part of these gatherings we definitely have a go to wine – Lamberti Extra Dry Prosecco.  Don’t be fooled by the words extra dry as this is certainly sweeter than any Brut style sparkling wine.  The pleasant bubbles and aromatic style make a great pairing with fruit and brunch entree’s and add to the festive atmosphere.
