Cherry Apple Gorgonzola Salad Recipe by Leah

Cherry Apple Gorgonzola Salad

 

Though I’ve only been posting recipes here a short time you probably can tell that we are salad lovers.  They are my go to lunch and my go to veggie side with a meal.  Obviously with a salad you need fresh and tasty greens but that’s only part of it.  The greens provide the most nutrients but they’re also just the base.  To make a salad truly delicious they need to be topped with all kinds of goodies: something savory, something sweet, something crunchy, and don’t forget the cheese!  This is a salad with a combination of all those things and a mild and sweet dressing to boot.
