When schedules are tight and temperatures are high, the thought of cooking an elaborate meal in a warm kitchen is just not appealing to the Canvas Gals. Lighter meals and simple, healthy eating is just our style in the summer and this salad inspired by a friend's recipe has evolved and become a staple. So, we thought we would pass it along to you too!
Summer Fruit Salad
- 1/4 C Arugula
- 1-2 Green Figs
- 2 T Fresh Blueberries
- 1/4 Steamed Corn (cut off the cob)
- 1 T Gorgonzola Cheese
- Rosemary Olive Oil
- Aged Balsamic Vinegar
Add Arugula to a bowl and add green figs sliced in quarters, blueberries, and corn. Top with Gorgonzola cheese and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic. Add cracked pepper to taste and enjoy!
Also excellent with white peaches and grilled chicken for a heartier meal.
