Salad with Gorgonzola and Pomegranate Seeds

The pomegranate seeds give a jewel-like appearance to this sparkling, seasonal salad. To avoid stains from seeding the pomegranate, submerge the fruit in a bowl of water and remove seeds with your hands.

Vinaigrette Dressing:
2 tablespoons balsamic
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
cup olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Salad:
4 cups mixed greens
1 cup crumbled young Gorgonzola cheese or a favorite blue cheese
1 cup pomegranate seeds

In a small bowl whisk together vinaigrette ingredients until well blended.
In a large shallow serving bowl combine lettuce, radicchio and endive. Toss with vinaigrette. Sprinkle with cheese and then with pomegranate seeds.
Serves 8.
