Donna's Beet And Orange Salad With Blue Cheese And Walnuts

My friend Mary created this recipe with her favorite salad ingredients. If you like beets, this is an absolute winner. Combine them with oranges, blue cheese and walnuts with a creamy red wine vinegar and blue cheese dressing. The salad can even be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to serve.

4 cups mixed greens 1 can (15 ounces) sliced beets 1/2 cup mandarin oranges 1 ounces crumbled blue cheese 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Dressing2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon orange juice 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 1 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon fat-free sour cream 1 tablespoon blue cheese salt and pepper to taste

Arrange salad greens on 4 individual salad plates. Cut each piece of beet into 1/4 inch, match-stick style, slices and place over lettuce. Arrange oranges on top. Sprinkle blue cheese and walnuts on top of the salad.

In a small food processor, combine all dressing ingredients. Mix until smooth.

When ready to serve, drizzle desired amount of dressing over individual salads.

Serves 4
