Single Girl Dinner #3 - Strawberry and Bleu Cheese Salad

I haven't posted in this category for a while.  For those of you new to this blog, the "single girl" dinners are meals that I eat when David is out with his friends and it is just me for dinner so I can experiment and do different things.  This salad is so fresh and delicious and perfect for the upcoming summer nights.  Of course anyone can make it, but this recipe is just for one salad so make sure to multiply the ingredients as necessary.


1 small head butter or red lettuce
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1 small salad onion, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh strawberries, tops removed
1/3 cup bleu cheese crumbles
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
fresh black pepper

1. Clean and rinse lettuce and rip or cut into desired size.  Place on plate.
2. Top salad with cucumber, salad onion, strawberry and bleu cheese.
3. Drizzle olive oil and then vinegar over the veggies
4. Top with fresh black pepper
5. Enjoy with a delicious glass of white wine!


  1. I must try this salad! It sounds delicious! I wonder how it would taste with blueberries too :)

  2. I bet blueberries would be great! You could change bleu cheese for goat cheese too!
