"Seasonal greens, sugar snap peas, fresh blueberries, dried cranberries, and cheese topped with a tangy dressing made of balsamic vinegar and a hint of sweet real maple syrup make this salad a favorite. It makes for a successful first course and to be savoured as a light lunch meal that can be put together faster than you can say "I'm hungry". How can one go wrong with this lovely salad taken from "Recipes from a very Small Island" cookbook that celebrates Maine fare."

I made enough for 2 servings. I also added chopped mixed nuts and chose the goat cheese to use this time. It was a very good salad, and I loved the dressing with it!
