You’ll need the following ingredients to make this delicious salad:
Spinach: Baby spinach is perfect for this salad and pairs well with the blueberry dressing. However, mixed greens or arugula work perfectly, too! I usually end up using a combo of all of these or whatever I have on hand!
Mint: Might sound odd, but it takes this salad OVER THE TOP! Just chop up a handful and mint leaves and sprinkle them over the top–the fresh taste is incredible in this salad!
Gorgonzola cheese: This creamy cheese pairs so well with the sweet, fresh fruit. If you aren’t a fan of gorgonzola, you can leave it out or substitute blue cheese or goat cheese.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I highly recommend using fresh fruit for this salad! Frozen (thawed) fruit has a different texture that isn’t ideal in salad, but can be used in a pinch!
A store bought raspberry dressing would also be great on this salad! Brands like Marie’s or Briana’s are widely available and both have their versions of raspberry vinaigrettes.
This salad is super versatile, meaning you can add or omit a lot and make an amazing salad! As with most of my recipes, if you don’t like something, leave it out! Here are some good swaps or additions:
Raspberries, nectarines (or other stone fruits), apples, crumbled goat cheese, candied walnuts, marcona almonds, grilled peaches (AMAZING, BTW!), bacon, blue cheese, red onion.
Yes! This salad is great for a meal prep and keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days. Store the dressing separately in small jars or containers. I suggest storing the nuts separately too, then sprinkle them on when you’re ready to eat–they stay nice and crunchy that way.
For storing, I love using meal prep containers like these from Amazon. You can also find them pretty cheap at TJ Maxx or Marshalls!
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS
- To make this come together super quickly, use diced rotisserie chicken. OR when grilling, grill up an extra chicken breast or two to have for this salad during the week.
