After having this salad while dining a Bucca Di Beppo a few times I knew I had to make it at home. It is a perfect blend of flavors and textures. My first instinct was to look it up online, and find a recipe I did! I tried it out...and while I liked it the dressing just didn't have the same pizzaz that it had in the restaurant. Sooooo...I took matters in to my own hands to create a dressing that satisfied my craving for this salad.
There are a few things you need to make this salad - the first a nice romaine lettuce, chopped. The second? Crumbled Gorgonzola - so delish! You'll also need green apples, sliced and chopped, dried cranberries, candied walnuts, and of course - the dressing!
The first 4 ingredients don't need any additional prep, but the last two do. As far as the candied Walnuts? There is a fabulous recipe here on the blog for cinnamon pecans. I used this recipe - and the pecans were fabulous in the salad! If you want walnuts, just sub them for the pecans - it will turn out great! I'll give you the recipe again below.
For the dressing, get out your blender - its the easiest way to whip up a yummy dressing.
