    I made this with a semi soft goats cheese and spring onions and it was incredible. Next time I will likely try it with chèvre

    This one is tasty and super easy. Used lacinato kale and it took only a few minutes to saute. Cut cream down to 1/3 cup (there is plenty of dressing for the salad), added a dash of cayenne, and used 2 ounces of gorgonzola (I think 4 ounces would have been too much taste wish). Everything else was per the recipe.
    My teenager and husband enjoyed it...will add to the recipe box to make it again!
