Feast your eyes on this stunning Strawberry Salad with Gorgonzola, Walnuts and Mint! It's a party in your mouth! The perfect summer salad that will keep you coming back again and again.
Servings 4 servings
- 5 oz spring mix (I like the 50/50 mix with half spring mix and half spinach
- 1 pint strawberries washed, hulled, sliced
- 1 cup walnut halves
- 3 oz creamy Gorgonzola look for the Gorgonzola that doesn't just crumble apart, you want the really creamy kind
- 1/2 cup mint chiffonade
- 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
Place spring mix in a large bowl. Top with strawberries and walnuts.
Sprinkle Gorgonzola and mint chiffonade over the top.
For the dressing.
Combine all ingredients in a glass jar with a lid.
Place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously until the dressing has emulsified. It should look homogeneous in appearance.
Serve salad with dressing on the side or drizzle over the top just before serving.
This salad can easily be turned into an entree salad with the addition of cubed chicken. Grilled or roasted is my favorite. Enjoy!
You won't need all of the dressing for this salad. Store leftovers in the fridge.
