The ingredients are simple:

  • Baby Spinach
  • Canned Mandarin Oranges ( drained)
  • Chopped Red Onion
  • 1 Container Gorgonzola Cheese
  • Walnuts
  • Creamy Raspberry Dressing (purchased)

Now for a word about the Gorgonzola cheese.  I don’t normally like Gorgonzola cheese or Blue cheese.  However, I find that the raspberry dressing and the mandarin oranges really complement the Gorgonzola cheese and it has a very mild flavor in this recipe.  I would recommend trying it with the Gorgonzola cheese and see what you think.  You could also  substitute crumbled feta or goat cheese .
