Baby Greens with a Warm Gorgonzola Dressing

"This was the result of an attempt to imitate a salad dressing at a restaurant. I did modify it to include bacon and I serve it warm. The dressing is also fantastic over gnocchi or tortellini."

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble and set aside.
  2. Combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, white sugar, salt, garlic, and Gorgonzola cheese in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour the dressing into a small saucepan over medium-low heat and warm gently.
  3. Toss the baby greens, almonds, and crumbled bacon together in a salad bowl; drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Excellent! The dressing is also great 'unwarmed' for anyone squeamish about warming it. I warmed mine very happily. This is also a great salad for additions of...whatever. I served sliced apple ...

Loved this salad! I used a mix of baby spinaches, used reduced fat feta cheese and did not warm the dressing. It was excellent!
