red grape & balsamic salad

i have to share my current favorite lunch - this delicious red grape salad. it combines all my fave things - crisp grapes, ripe avocado, and gorgonzola. yum!

the only annoying part of this super-easy prep is slicing every. single. grape. as tedious as it is, this does make a huge difference - it lets all the yummy balsamic soak in.

after you cut your grapes and avocado, gently mix in the walnuts and gorgonzola. i use my hands to fold it all in so the avocado doesn't turn to mush. in a small bowl, mix the liquids with a good squeeze of honey, and drizzle over the top.

this serves 4-6 people {it's pretty rich, so small servings are great!}, but it stores really well in the fridge so i just scoop some out into tupperware each day to bring for lunch. next time i want to try it on french bread slices, sort of like a summery bruschetta. so good!
