Green Salad Recipe with Homemade Honey Mustard Dressing

I am a big fan of serving a green salad with dinner. Its a great way to eat dark leafy greens, and maybe some other fruits and veggies. I love to use new ingredients to change things up. Sometimes there are more vegetables than fruit and sometimes I toss in some nuts and make a fresh dressing. But this green salad is by far my favorite! Mixed greens tossed with grapes, apples, dried cranberries and blue cheese and then topped with a creamy homemade honey mustard dressing. Serve on the side with pasta, or add some grilled chicken to it and call it a dinner salad.
