Insalata di Mamma
A mixed green salad with crumbled gorgonzola and pignoli nuts is one of my Mom’s favorites. The honey balsamic dressing provides a wonderful balanced flavor with the gorgonzola cheese.
3 Cups Mixed Greens & 2 Cups Baby Arugula
1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes
3 Tbsp. Red Onion, Sliced Thin
½ Cup Crumbled Gorgonzola & ¼ Cup Pignoli Nuts (Pine Nuts)
1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard, 1 Tbsp. Honey
¼ Cup Balsamic Vinegar
½ Tsp. Salt & ½ Tsp. Black Pepper
½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
To prepare the dressing, combine the dijon mustard, honey, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Add the extra virgin olive oil in a slow stream, whisking constantly until well combined. Salad: Place all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle the salad dressing over the top of the salad and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve additional honey balsamic dressing on the side.
