Spinach & Blue Cheese Salad With Walnut Dressing

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by EeeGee

A delicious salad that is quite simple to prepare. The walnuts and tomatoes can be prepared ahead of time. Works really well as an entree or a light lunch. The original recipe came from 'Australian Good Taste' magazine and stated serving size was 4, I think it is better as 2 generous serves.

Absolutely yummy. I have seen similar recipes but the toasting of the nuts made this extra special. I served this to friends and they loved it
