Yummy Salad

A friend of mine had this on her blog. It sounded good so we had it for dinner tonight. It was really good so we thought we would share.

2 heads of leafy greens
3/4 c. Craisins
2 crisp apples
Orange juice (enough to toss apples in to prevent browning and add a little flavor)
2 oz. blue cheese or Gorgonzola (I don't like Blue Cheese and couldn't find Gorgonzola so we used Feta Cheese)
1/2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (We didn't use any nuts. Sunflower seeds would probably be good too.)

Honey Red Wine Vinaigrette:

1/2 c. red wine vinegar
1/2 c. honey
1-2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 c. canola oil

In a blender, combine vinegar, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Place lid on blender and blend on high. While blender is running, add oil in a steady stream. Store in refrigerator for about 2-3 weeks. Shake well before serving.
