RECIPE: Insalata Gorgonzola with Chicken

Insalata Gorgonzola with Chicken
Serves 4

Italian Vinaigrette
4 pieces grilled chicken breast
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup sweet onion
2 Romaine, hearts only
1/2 cup of olives
2/3 cup walnuts, chopped in half
1/3 cup currants
1 cup blue cheese, crumbled

Slice the onion in very thin strips. Cut the cherry tomatoes in quarters or halves. Put the onions and tomatoes in the vinaigrette and let marinate while preparing the rest of the salad.

Prepare the chicken breasts and let cool. Slice into strips.

Wash and dry the Romaine hearts. Pit the olives if not already done. Either slice or break the walnuts in half. Place the lettuce, olives, and currants in the bowl with the marinating tomatoes and onions and toss.

Serve the salad on individual plates and scatter the blue cheese and walnuts on top. Place the sliced chicken breasts on top of the salad and serve.
