Bacon Gorgonzola Pears Salad recipe is perfect if you want to add more greens to your diet. This tasty and delicious salad is full of the best toppings and balsamic vinaigrette that goes perfectly with it.
We’re in February now, and i hope that many of you still stick to your New Year’s resolutions strongly. This year my resolution is to eat salad on a regular bases. This bacon Gorgonzola salad is my choice of the month!
With bacon, everything tastes just heavenly. Every crispy piece of bacon blended with these ingredients will be a joy to your senses. For my taste, the crunchier salad is the better, it’s all about texture for me. Roasted pecans are used for the topping in addition to the lovely crispy bacon. You can use them raw, but if you want you can bake them on a baking sheet for about five minutes.
Most of the salads i make are full of fruits. I love using pears or apples, and since we’re in the season right now i use dried cranberries also. For just the right amount of sweetness
A pound of baby spinach or spring mix are both perfect for the greens on this salad.
