Notes: Basil-flavor olive oil is available in well-stocked supermarkets and specialty food shops. If making vinaigrette (step 1) up to 2 hours ahead, cover and let stand at room temperature.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 2-cup glass measure or small microwave-safe bowl, combine 2 tablespoons cranberries, apricots, and vinegar. Heat in a microwave oven at full power (100%) until steaming, about 1 minute. Let stand at room temperature or chill until cool.

Step 2

In a blender or food processor, whirl fruit mixture until smooth. Pour purée back into glass measure; add oil and whisk to blend.

Step 3

Put greens in a wide, shallow bowl. Add 2/3 of the vinaigrette and mix gently to coat. Scatter cheese, blueberries, and remaining cranberries evenly over greens. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Add salt and pepper to taste.

The salad was delicious but the dressing was a little thick. I even had to add more olive oil and it was still too thick. The taste was good.
