Flexibility is a strong point of this salad, as a mix of any seasonal greens can be the base. Choose what’s fresh and well-priced, then add juicy blueberries and creamy Gorgonzola for flavor, color and texture contrast.

3 tbsp. sour cream

2 tbsp. honey

1 tbsp. white vinegar

1 tbsp. poppy seeds

1 tsp. lemon juice

½ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

8 cups mixed torn salad greens, such as tatsoi, Belgian endive and/or bibb lettuce

1 cup fresh blueberries

2 oz. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
