Last night we had dinner at a friends house, ones that since our move it seems we too infrequently get together. We supplied the first real salad from the garden. Since we planted the stir-fry mix in the cold frames we did a Spicy Mustard Salad with Blueberries and Gorgonzola. What an amazing combination of flavors! There is something so special about these spicy greens that seem to go with everything. The mustard makes a great topper on a roast beef sandwich, so you have the flavor of horseradish and the crisp green all in one. Though this salad is not for the faint of heart, the sweet blueberries and rich cheese so balance the spice that anyone can be introduced to this amazing green. So, when you're at the local farmers market, don't shy away from these greens, they are well worth the try.

White Balsamic Dressing (we cheated this time and used bottled Girard's)
**I'm sure it would be tasty too with some toasted pine nuts!
