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

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

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.
