Someone on Zaar said that CPK is not serving this salad anymore and wanted the recipe. I happen to have the recipe and I'm happy to post it here so these salad lovers can again have their 'fix.' This recipe serves 4 entree size servings or 8 side servings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a blender, process basil, gorgonzola and vinegar. Then, on a slower speed, blend in oil briefly. Set aside in refrigerator to chill.
  2. Later, in a large mixing bowl, combine the greens.
  3. Add dressing and toss to coat all leaves.
  4. Transfer the dressed greens to several chilled serving plates. Top each with equal amounts of crumbled Gorgonzola cheese and walnuts.

I have never eaten at CPK, but this is one tasty salad. The only thing that I would change is to maybe add sliced strawberries, thinly sliced Granny Smith apple or some dried cranberries. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
