Gorgonzola Salad With Rustic Bread.

This week we have been hit by a heat wave and the thermometer has risen dramatically! With this hot, sticky weather, I really feel like having a lot of raw fruits and veg, but I don’t want to compromise on creativity or flavours….So there isn’t anything like a tasty gorgonzola salad when it comes to freshness and flavour!

This salad is a light, complete meal, but also as a dish that stands somewhere between healthy and comfort food…You will love it! I kept it simple, but you can add toasted walnuts for extra flavour. Walnuts and gorgonzola work perfectly together! So many things can be prepared with these two wonderful ingredients.

But, of course, if you don’t like smelly cheeses, then this dish is definitely not for you! So, look away now!!!🙂

  1. This looks so fresh and light! When the temperatures rise I can not seem to get enough crispy cool salads. This is a good one! Love gorgonzola! I agree about toasted walnuts going so well together with gorgonzola.

    1. Thank you Chaya! It was so soft, even the crust was soft! I used mainly Manitoba with a little wholemeal flour, that’s all!🙂 I made it very quickly…

    1. Thank you! I really like mixing different flavours and textures…The sweet creamy texture of the gorgonzola works really well with the crunchy vegetables and the rustic bread, loved it!!

    1. Hi Jess! It was so simple to make but really satisfying! Definitely something to try, if you love gorgonzola like me🙂 you’ll enjoy! Plus I’ve got to eat a lot of gorgonzola while I was making it! hahaha! I just couldn’t stop myself!
