This was part of the meal I made with my sister at our Sister's Day party a couple of weeks ago. This isn't really a recipe; obviously you can make a salad any way you like. But here's how we made ours.

Spinach and Sprout Salad with Gorgonzola

Ingredients:
baby spinach leaves, torn
sprouts (alfalfa or bean)
gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
tomatoes, diced
anything else you like
dressing of your choice

Directions:
Lay baby spinach in bottom of salad bowl. Add sprouts and top with cheese and tomatoes. Serve with dressing.

We had never had gorgonzola before and I (at least) had never had sprouts before. We really liked the gorgonzola. It is crumbly like feta but has a very sharp taste to it. It's kind of like an extra-sharp bleu cheese. Super good.

The sprouts were okay. I can't say that the were good or bad; they were just there. They didn't really add flavor; a bit of texture, maybe. They are supposed to be very healthy.


Before the addition of the tomatoes. I thought it needed a bit of color.
