Spinach & Blue Cheese Salad With Walnut Dressing

"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."
