Baby Greens with a Warm Gorgonzola Dressing

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 ounces, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 6 cups mixed baby greens
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble and set aside.
  2. Combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, white sugar, salt, garlic, and Gorgonzola cheese in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour the dressing into a small saucepan over medium-low heat and warm gently.
  3. Toss the baby greens, almonds, and crumbled bacon together in a salad bowl; drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
