“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.”

Directions

  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.

This salad is absolutely delicious! I omitted the bacon, halved the sugar, added some thin slices of pears and added pecans instead of almonds.

As I was reading this recipe I realized I forgot to mention that if you use it as a pasta sauce you need to omit the vinegar....for obvious reasons. I also wouldn't mix the entire batch of sauce with all of the greens but drizzle each serving with a little bit. Fresh sliced pears and/or candied pecans work very well with this salad.

Sooooo GOOD! I loved this. At first when I tasted the dressing I immediately thought, too sweet. However the gorgonzola catches up quicky making it a wonderful combination of salty, tangy and sweet - PERFECT! Also, the dressing processes up nice and thick and doesn't seperate! As far as the salad part goes, I had to omit the nuts(allergy) but did add a sprinkle of green onions. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
