Field Green Salad with Apple, Almonds and Gorgonzola $4.78

The trouble with this blog is Kim and I made a few promises, and one of them was to stay under $70 a week to feed a family of 4 dinner(healthy, delicious dinners-that is) and the other was to create 365 unique different meals. Well, the $70 budget has proven to be a peiece of cake. Our meals for 7 days have been hovering around costing between $30-$45 a week, thats around $5-7 a day to feed 4 people(and lots of times wth leftovers) Wow, even we think that is amazing. The "unique" meals is also not an issue, except sometimes both of us like something so much, we want it more then once in a year. I dont think either of us would ever tire of mixed field greens crumbled bluecheese. Since we have allready done this salad with pears, cranberries and walnuts, we changed the lineup to apples and almonds, but kept in the field greens and bluecheese. Field greens could easily be substituted for spinach leafs, as could the cheese be replaced with feta or even parmegiano, but for me tonight I am sticking with the field greens and blue cheese. I love the combo with the fruit and the nuts.

1 lb bag mixed field greens $1.99
1/2c bluecheese crumbled .99
2 apples, sliced thinly, skin on .50
1/2 c sliced almonds .80
1 small red onion sliced thinly .20
1 cup raspberry vinegrette .30
salt to taste

toss ingredients in a big salad bowl, toss in dressing add salt to taste and serve
