Arugula and blueberry salad

My mother-in-law, Sandy, made this fantastic salad for dinner a short time ago.  It was so light, sweet and tasty I devoured two big bowls!  YUM!

I made it tonight for the first time and WOW was it delicious and super easy.

Arugula and blueberry salad

4 cups arugula leaves (cut into bite-sized pieces)

1/2-3/4 c blueberries (as much as you like :))

1/2-3/4 c candied walnuts or pecans*

1/4-1/2 c crumbled blue cheese

2 T Kraft Light Raspberry Vinagrette Dressing (to taste)

Freshly ground black pepper

Put all ingredients in a covered bowl, shake well and serve.

*To candy the nuts:  Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.  Place nuts in a baking dish.  Cover with honey or agave nectar and sprinkle with Ground Chipotle Pepper (we use a LOT, but be careful this stuff is very hot!).  Bake for 7-10 minutes (until golden brown).  Be careful not to burn the nuts!  These hot candied nuts are awesome for snacking as well, so I always make extra! Leave out the blue cheese for a nice and flavorful vegan salad.  ENJOY!
