Fig Salad with Raspberries, Blue Cheese and Pine Nuts

Figs were on sale 3/$1...how could I pass that by? I decided to make an elaborate fig salad.

Fig Salad with Raspberries, Blue Cheese and Pine Nuts
Ingredients (without amounts)
arugula, very well washed
figs, stems removed, sliced
raspberries
red onion, thinly sliced
blue cheese, crumbled
olive oil
raspberry blush vinegar
grainy mustard
pine nuts, toasted

Directions
1. Put arugula leaves on a plate. Top with figs, raspberries, red onions, and blue cheese.
2. In a separate little bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar and mustard.
3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad, and top with toasted pine nuts.
Thoughts: the variety of flavors and textures was awesome!
