Salad with strawberry vinaigrette and gorgonzola cheese.

It was Saturday night dinner with pizza and I wanted to come up with something light but healthy to balance the cheesy pizza. I had picked up gorgozola cheese the other day as I love the sharp flavor especially when added in salads with apples and walnuts. I didn’t have walnuts but had Pecans and decided to skip apples as my hubby is allergic to them.

Usually this combination of gorgonzola cheese goes well with a raspberry vinaigrette but didn’t have that either.. voila ! there were strawberries in my fridge! So I decided to try a new vinaigrette 🙂

Ingredients for the dressing-

1 lime juice, 2 strawberries,  extra virgin Olive oil.
Finely chop the strawberries and add them to the lime juice. Let this sit for a while and squish the strawberries with a fork so that its flavor infuses into the lime juice. Add a pinch of salt to it. Drizzle olive oil into this while mixing it simultaneously with a fork so that it combines well with the lime juice. Here is your strawberry flavored Vinaigrette ready! Then toss in a bowl,  some  mixed Salad greens, one red bell pepper ( I like colour in my salad) about 1/4 cup of toasted pecans and gorgonzola cheese. Keep this in the fridge till you are ready to serve and then just drizzle the dressing over it.

Enjoy your salad ! Bon apetito !
