A winter salad that will leave you speechless! Crunchy romaine lettuce, juicy orange slices, toasted pecans, sweet pomegranate seeds and delicious gorgonzola. All topped with an amazing sage vinaigrette.
1headromaine lettuce or 3 large hands full of baby spinach
3.5-5ozGorgonzola(100-150g, or any other blue cheese)
Thinly slice romaine lettuce, wash and dry in a salad spinner. (If you don't have a salad spinner, spread out over a kitchen towel, cover with another kitchen towel and pat dry. If the lettuce is too wet, the water dilutes the dressing). Add to a big salad bowl.
Cut off the peel of the oranges and cut into wheels. (Peeling won't be as good because it leaves the bitter white skin on the orange). Add to salad bowl.
Take out pomegranate seeds. Add to salad bowl.
Heat a dry pan over medium heat.
Chop pecans and toast in pan by moving around every once in a while to avoid burning. Add to salad bowl.
Break Gorgonzola into crumbs and add to salad bowl.
In a mason jar or any other sealable container add mustard, apple cider vinegar, olive oil and super finely chopped sage leaves, seal and shake until very well combined.
Add vinaigrette to salad just before serving and mix well.
