Pecan and Gorgonzola Salad      

CarbsPerServing:no counts provided

Effort:Easy

Bibb or leaf lettuce

gorgonzola cheese

pecan pieces (toasted in butter on stove top. Be careful because pecans will burn before butter. Make sure to toast them for full effect)olive oil/balsamic vinegar season with salt and pepper to tast

How to Prepare:

There’s something about the combination of these flavors that’s out of this world. For those with a few carbs to spare, throw in a bit of chopped-up pear. If I’m having a sweet or a salty craving, this salad will almost always take care of it. (Left over flank steak also beefs up this dish). Bon appetit!
