Ready Time

25 mins


4 servings


  • 2 cups red grapes, halved
  • 1 cup chopped fresh walnuts
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Blue Cheese Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Start by preparing the Blue Cheese Dressing: in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, crumbled blue cheese, Dijon mustard, and chopped chives until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine mixed greens, halved red grapes, chopped walnuts, crumbled blue cheese, chopped red onion, and chopped fresh parsley. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to make the vinaigrette.

Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and toss to combine.

Divide the salad among four plates. Drizzle each salad with the prepared Blue Cheese Dressing and serve immediately.


Use a good quality blue cheese for the best flavor, as it’s the star of the show here! Make the Blue Cheese Dressing ahead of time and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

If you prefer a lighter dressing, you can reduce the amount of mayonnaise in the Blue Cheese Dressing.

Feel free to customize the amount of walnuts and red onion to your liking – some people love a lot of crunch, while others prefer less.

You can prep the vinaigrette and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Red grapes can be substituted with green grapes if that’s what you have on hand, but the sweetness of the red grapes pairs nicely with the tangy blue cheese.
