From the Kitchen of Terri N. Bergman
Melt in your mouth Peaches, super ripe Strawberries, poppin Blackberries sit atop a bed of fresh greens and chopped Mint! Now let’s have fun and add Stilton Cheese in a wedge, toasted Pecans and the finale KB’s own Fruited and Spicy Sausage balls skewered in a row! Dress this salad with a light Vinaigrette with a touch of sweetness from Maple Syrup…yes we have arrived. Enjoy this beautiful and delicious Salad as a lunch or as a deck eating and wine drinking dinner! Not into the Sausage Balls, well add a second cheese (Brie) more fruit (Blueberries) and a little garnish of compote! Equally delish!

2 large handfuls of fresh salad greens
1 large handful of chopped mint leaves
1 ripe Peach, sliced but not peeled
8 large strawberries hulled and halved
Small wedge of Stilton Cheese halved

In two large salad bowls/platters place a handful of salad greens, and divide chopped mint leaves if available. Place half of the sliced fruits on each plate, sm. wedge of Stilton, add Pecans and Sausage Balls. I like to put the sausage balls on a skewer for presentation, either fresh Rosemary or wooden spear.

¼ C Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp of Maple Syrup
