Cranberry Gorgonzola Salad

salad recipe with cranberries gorgonzola and walnuts

Tart, sweet, and savory.  Crisp, crunchy, and chewy.  This salad recipe definitely draws attention to itself.



1 head lettuce (anything but iceberg, if you can help it), torn into bite-sized pieces
1 small granny-smith apple, cut into fairly small chunks
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped


½ cup oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup honey (or 1/3 cup sugar)


SALAD: Mix lettuce and spinach.  Top with the rest!  Try dipping your fork into a side of dressing before stabbing your bite of salad.  It gives you the flavor without too much dressing!
DRESSING: Shake or whisk together all ingredients in a cruet or small bowl.
