Strawberry Gorgonzola Salad

Florida strawberries are especially sweet and juicy which makes them go great with leafy greens and intense cheeses like gorgonzola. The citrus-bright flavor of the berries cuts right through the crumbly bite of the rich cheese and the walnuts give a smooth, smokey flavor to the salad.

All and all, between the iron-rich spinach, vitamin rich strawberries and apple, healthy fats and proteins in the walnuts and just a touch of gorgonzola, this is one salad you can feel good about eating; without sacrificing any flavor!

Florida Strawberry & Gorgonzola Salad

  • 6 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup of fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 apple, sliced thin
  • 4 tbs of your favorite vinaigrette

Toss all ingredients and serve immediately.

I never would have thought of this type of salad, whoever thought of a adding fruit and blue cheese and nuts to a salad is genius !
