Heirloom Lettuce Salad with Apples, Pecans and Gorgonzola

Heirloom Lettuce Salad with Apples, Pecans and Gorgonzola

6 cups Earthbound Farm* organic heirloom lettuce leaves, torn into bite-size pieces, carefully rinsed and dried (or substitute Earthbound Farm organic spring mix or washed butter lettuce)
1 large or 2 small Earthbound Farm* organic apples, peeled, quartered, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup pecan pieces, toasted

1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese


1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons minced shallot
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground bladc pepper, to taste

To prepare the vinaigrette, place all the ingredients in a glass jar and seal the lid tightly. Shake vigorously to combine. (The dressing can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 1 month. Let it return to room temperature and shake
vigorously before using.)

Place lettuce in a large bowl and toss with half of the vinaigrette. Divide the lettuce among 4 salad plates.

Place apples in the same bowl, drizzle with a small amount of dressing, and toss to coat. Divide the apples among the salad plates.

Sprinkle pecans and cheese over the salads. Drizzle with additional dressing, if desired, and serve immediately. Serves 4 as a side salad.
