Blueberry Salsa Spinach Salad
1 large fresh orange
2 cups fresh blueberries (I also added in a handful of fresh raspberries)
2 apples, diced
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 T. chopped cilantro
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3 T. apple juice
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
10 oz. baby spinach
4 oz. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Peel and section orange, then cut into small pieces; place in large bowl. Stir in blueberries, apples, onion and cilantro. In small bowl, whisk vinegar, apple juice, oil, sugar and salt. Pour 1/2 dressing over blueberry mixture, stirring gently to coat; let stand 10 minutes. Arrange baby spinach on plates. Spoon blueberry mixture over spinach. Drizzle reamaining dressing over salads. Top with cheese and black pepper. Enjoy!!
