Grape Salad w/Blue Cheese and Walnuts

While planning our Father's Day menu, my daughter was inspired by a grape salad that she saw at the grocery store. She had read the ingredients to me and we decided to try it at home. It was a tangy, sweet treat with a right amount of creamy and crunchy. Yum.

Red and Green Grapes (enough to fill a large bowl)
Crumbled Blue Cheese
4T Honey (more if you like it sweeter)
1.5 T Canola Oil (or veg)
3T White or Red Wine Vinegar (I used a little of both...but apple cider vinegar would be good as well. Or you can get fancy with gourmet vinegars like cherry or pomegranate).

Combine the honey, oil and vinegar (adjust the ingredients to your liking). Pour half of the mixture over the grapes. Crumble the blue cheese into the bowl along with the walnuts. Toss. Pour remaining dressing over the salad. Chill about an hour before serving. Enjoy!
