Simple Salad

We had a potluck this week and I signed up for salad duty, figuring that I could work with what I had in the house already. Here's what I came up with:

6 cups organic field greens salad mix
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup sugared walnuts*see below
1/4 - 1/2 cup poppy seed dressing (I like Renee's) - to your own liking

Mix everything together just before serving.

Sugared Walnuts

1/2 cup walnut pieces or halves
2 tbsp margarnine, melted
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnimon

Heat oven to 300*. Coat walnuts with melted margarine by shaking together in a ziplock bag. Spread walnuts into a jelly-roll or loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar and cinnimon onto walnuts. Mix together. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes to toast.
