Apple Gorgonzola Salad is a simple salad inspired by the restaurant Buca di Beppo however I substitute spinach for romaine lettuce and the type of vinaigrette used. It is a wonderfully sweet and savory salad to enjoy!
Apple Gorgonzola Spinach Salad with Pear Vinaigrette
Remove core, slice and chop apple. Wash the spinach if not pre-washed and crumble cheese if needed.
Once everything is ready, mix vinaigrette into lettuce.
Add chopped apples, 3/4 of the walnuts and 3/4 of the Gorgonzola cheese. Toss well. Plate and garnish with remaining walnuts, cranberries, apples and cheese. Serve immediately.
Blend the pear, white wine, garlic, Dijon mustard, white balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and sea salt in a blender until well combined then add the olive oil into the mixture while continuing to blend until the salad dressing is thick and creamy.
