Grape, Walnut & Blue Cheese Salad

At Central Market in the pre-cooked items section, I have seen that they had a “Grape, Walnut, & Blue Cheese Salad” and I thought, what a clever idea!  I haven’t tried it yet from there, mainly because I am not going to pay so much for something that can be made so easily, but I will admit that I totally stole their clever idea and made it into how I thought it should taste.  I mixed the Grape, Walnuts, and Blue cheese together and drizzled a little homemade lemon-honey viniagrette over it.  So delicious!  This is a GREAT, no fuss summer side dish when you have guests over.  Or make it at the beginning of the week and just enjoy it to yourself as an easy addition to your packed lunch!  Enjoy!
