Friday's Favorites ~ Pomodori e Vino

This is my Friday's Favorite for this week . . .
Fresh and simple salads... just in time for Spring!
This is a salad that is so simple and so full of flavor. It goes with almost any dish.
Romaine Lettuce Salad with Gorgonzla Cheese and Walnuts

Use the tender crunchy leaves of a head of Romaine Lettuce. The dressing is made with Olive Oil, Red Wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Bits of the Gorgonzola are blended into the oil and vinegar.
The salad is then assembled by tossing in the dressing~ then topped with walnuts and more cheese.
Next time I make it I am also going to include some slices of pear.
We have had so much fun following Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Italian Cooking. It's a Favorite...
What is your Friday's Favorite today?

Y'all join in,
Sandi

Hi Sandi (again), I'm all linked up and would love to have you stop on over and link up your salad or any other post that you'd like on my weekend get-together. I thought that your Pomodori e Vino button was another blog, but I'm thinking now that it is a Facebook page. . . . yes/nor? I'm confused (which is normal)!

This is a favorite salad here also. I have been using pecans since I have leftovers from the holiday cooking. Gorgonzola rules over bleu cheese!!
