Apple, Gorgonzola and Bacon Salad

This is truly one of my favorite salads of all time.  The salty flavor of the bacon, tartness of the dried cherries, crunch from the nuts, sweetness of the dressing and the creamy gorgonzola on top just makes for the best salad ever.  If you don't like gorgonzola feel free to add any crumbled cheese that you like!


  • 5 oz spring mix
  • 3 pieces of cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 large apple chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans
  • crumbled gorgonzola

*Sweet Balsamic Dressing*

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp dry mustard
  • freshly ground black pepper

Combine ingredients for the salad in a bowl and toss to combine.  Combine ingredients for dressing in a jar or measuring cup and pour over salad.
