With washed spinach--baby and otherwise--available in most supermarkets these days, a fresh spinach salad is almost no work at all. Adding just a few great ingredients like cranberries and gorgonzola makes it a very special salad. Toasting the pecans brings out their rich, sweet flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a shallow baking pan, bake pecans in a 350° oven until golden in the center (break one to check), 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

Step 2

In a large bowl, gently mix spinach, pecans, cranberries, crumbled gorgonzola, olive oil, and vinegar. Season salad to taste with salt and pepper.
