Gorgonzola and Toasted Walnut Salad

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 5 mins

This salad couldn't be simpler and will be a hit with blue cheese lovers. Pecans can be substituted for the walnuts. Cooking time is for the time it takes to toast the walnuts in a 325 degree oven for a few minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine lettuce with cheese and walnuts.
  2. Combine and whisk together dressing ingredients.
  3. Toss salad with enough dressing to coat but avoid over-dressing.
  4. Serve.

Delicious, I used pecans toasted them in the Microwave. Used lots of Gorgonzola cheese as it is a favorite. This is so good will be trying it with cranberries a Rita did. Thank you Judy.

Made this for a salad luncheon at work. It went over very well, and one coworker even got the recipe from me to make for some guests she was having that weekend. I LOVE the vinaigrette. I eat lots of salads, and I plan to keep a jar of it on hand at all times.
