Baby Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing

I was introduced to fresh off the tree figs a few years back on the west coast of Canada. Until then, I seriously had no idea they were such a pretty looking fruit (on the inside). They were so sweet and quickly became a fave! With summer here it is a great time to add seasonal produce to salads and recipes. This Baby Spinach salad with Blue Cheese dressing has the perfect flavour combination. The strong bite of the Blue Cheese really balances it out perfectly!

    Yum! Looks pretty to serve too. Lately if I have been cooking or making salads with spinach I've been sneaking in a bit of kale and so far, no one has noticed.
