Gorgonzola and Walnut Salad

The creaminess of the Gorgonzola is a made-in-heaven foil for the slightly bitter, warm walnuts.

1 bag salad containing spinach (and other greens, if you like), rinsed and dried
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled and at room temperature
Simple vinaigrette (see recipe)

Divide the salad greens evenly among 4 plates. Scatter the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast them lightly (a quick way is to run them under the broiler -- it takes only a minute or two -- but you have to watch them like a hawk to make certain they don't burn). Remove from heat and transfer walnuts to a small bowl to cool slightly.

Scatter the walnuts and the Gorgonzola over the greens on each plate. Lightly dress each salad with vinaigrette and serve. Serves 4.
