This a wonderful salad for anytime, but the cranberries and toasted pecans make it a perfect salad to serve this time of year. It's quick and easy but impressive enough to serve at a dinner party. Our soft buttery lettuce is perfect in this salad but, if you're not lucky enough to live near our farm, you can use any Bib or mescaline salad mix.
Bib Salad with Cranberries, Toasted Pecans, and Gorgonzola Cheese
1 head Waterberry lettuce, coarsely torn
1/3 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
3 ounces Gorgonzola cheese crumbled
1/3 cup (or as many as you like) dried cranberries
Mound lettuce onto 4 plates, top with pecans and Gorgonzola cheese. Drizzle with you favorite balsamic vinaigrette.
