Spinach Salad with Stilton, Portobellos, "Bacon", & Apple

Organic baby spinach with Stilton, sauteed portobellos, crumbled Morningstar "Bacon" strips, paper-thin slices of apple, and walnuts in a dijon-white wine vinaigrette. The crisp freshness of the apples with the creamy richness of the Stilton was a wonderful combination. The "bacon" was deliciously salty and the spinach with dijon dressing is a well-known winner!

This was a completely delicious and amazing dinner! The only shortfall was the portobellos, which I sauteed in the tiniest drop of olive oil. They needed something more: garlic, balsamic, smoke? Or perhaps warmth (they had cooled by the time I finished with the photo shoot!)

This salad was definitely restaurant-worthy!

Wow. Sure this would be an excellent balance of flavours. Unlike my French other half, I like apples and cheese together.
