This is the salad I created. I hope you enjoy it. It has Gorgonzola cheese, Capers, olives, red peppers, tomatoes, orange silces, and red onion.the sweetness of the oranges and acid from the Vinegar is delicious together. The salad is finished off with a Garlic Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. My family loves this salad. Enjoy!
