Butterscotch-Blue Cheese Salad
Bitter greens, salty cheese, crunchy walnuts and sweet butterscotch - it all works!
1 1/2 cups whole walnuts
6 - 8 cups chopped bitter greens
1 large tomato, diced
1 cup crumbled blue cheese (I like Gorgonzola)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup butterscotch ice cream topping
In a small skillet, saute walnuts in 2 tablespoons butter and 1/2 teaspoon salt until lightly browned. Set aside.
Arrange greens on a large platter (or individually plate). Top with tomato, then blue cheese and walnuts. Drizzle olive oil over and spoon butterscotch sauce on top. Serves 4 - 6.
