Cuisine American
Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • salad bowl
  • cutting board
  • paring knife


  • 1 ½ cups baby spinach
  • ¼ cup bleu cheese
  • 2 apples sliced
  • ¼ cup raisins or craisins
  • ¼ cup fresh strawberries washed and chopped
  • ¼ cup walnuts chopped


  • Using a cutting board and paring knife chop up apples, strawberries, and walnuts.
  • Place all ingredients in a salad bowl and top with your dressing of choice.
  • I recommend a light raspberry walnut vinaigrette.


Use a paring knife because a paring knife is a small short-bladed knife, used for intricate cutting, peeling, mincing, and dicing.  The blades are simple, sharp, and precise.  Ideal for peeling and cutting small fruit and vegetables.
