    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a fantastic spinach salad recipe, and one I have made many times for dinner parties. This salad is so good that it can really be served as a main meal, and also compares to the spinach salads that are served at the fancy restaurants, if not BETTER! You can use Roquefort in place of the gorgonzola...once you have tryed this salad you'll be hooked! This is a salad you make often!

      The six serving estimate is for six generous dinner servings. As a side it would easily serve 12. Even my husband, who is not a fan of blu cheese, liked the dressing.

      This was a delicious salad, with peppery spinach, salty tangy cheese, and sweetness from the honey. MMMMMM
