Blue Cheese Apple Salad

I never post meal salads, but after a few people have told me that they order salads out but always mess up making salads by putting too much in at home, I thought it might not be a bad idea. This comes in just about 300 calories for a dinner size portion.

3 c shredded romaine
1 green apple, cored and sliced
1 oz gorgonzola or blue cheese
1/8 c chopped walnuts
1 TBSP sunflower kernels
1/2 TBSP balsamic vinegar

In a small bowl, toss apple slices and vinegar to keep apple from browning.

Spread lettuce on a plate, top with the apples and remaining ingredients.

You may also make this in a large bowl, using the above quantities for every 2 people, and serve as a side dish.
