This Balsamic Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola and Hard-Boiled Eggs was my dinner recently on a night when I had worked in the garden all day! As I mentioned, there’s been a lot of gardening and not a lot of cooking going on around here. On the weekend I planted Celebrity tomatoes, Lemon Boy tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, peppers, rosemary, silver thyme, French tarragon, variegated marjoram, flat parsley, basil, and Thai basil.

I also have oregano, sage, curly parsley, more rosemary, and more mint that survived the winter but need to be weeded. I’m still looking for a couple of heirloom tomato plants, for sure Brandywines, and I also want to plant some spaghetti squash, butternut squash, arugula, swiss chard, and eggplant. Whew!

Still, even when there’s no time to cook you need something to eat. Lately I’ve been loving that organic spinach from Earthbound Farms, and I had some in the fridge. I also had a big block of Gorgonzola cheese and some boiled eggs, so this salad was the happy result. Very delicious, and with two eggs, it’s a full-meal salad. If you’re serving it as a side dish, one egg might be plenty.

Make it a Meal:

Balsamic Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola and Hard-Boiled Eggs would taste great with something like Friday Night Grilled Salmon, or Janet’s Mustard Chicken for a more hearty low-carb meal.

Balsamic Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola and Hard-Boiled Eggs

Balsamic Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola and Hard-Boiled Eggs is a tasty idea for dinner when you want something quick!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 handfuls baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
  • 3 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 T balsamic vinegar (I love Fini balsamic vinegar, although the organic Balsamic vinegar from Costco is great for the price)
  • 2 T crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (or use your favorite bleu cheese)
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, coarsely chopped
  • salt, preferably sea salt
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Put spinach in mixing bowl.
  2. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar (I love Fini balsamic vinegar), and toss spinach with just enough to coat the greens.
  3. Arrange spinach on serving plate, top with chopped egg and crumbled gorgonzola, and drizzle a tiny bit more dressing over the egg and cheese. (You may not need all the dressing.)
  4. Sprinkle with salt and grind over a bit of black pepper and enjoy!

  1. Thanks to everyone for all the nice feedback. I really must have been busy gardening, because I never even responded to all these nice comments. My apologies, and anonymous, thanks for letting me know you liked the recipe.

  2. That was absolutely delicious. I don’t like my current balsamic-vingar, but a little reduction made a big difference.

  3. What a wonderful combination, Kalyn! I love all the ingredients!

  4. That’s dinner tonight, just what I have in the fridge. Then I’ll practice some crepe flipping.

  5. This is perfect! I’ve been looking for more vegetarian meals I can incorporate, and I’m loving this one. Boiling eggs? I can do that!

  6. You WERE busy!
    I have tomatoes, spinach and radishes in the potager, and all of my herbs replaced. The rest will have to wait until I get back from the U.S.
    Besides, I don’t want to put seeds in too early – all the farmers will laugh at me…..
    Great salad!
    And when are you coming to dinner?

  7. To me, this is the perfect dinner combination. I love the Earthbound Farms greens, too — at least until the farm fresh stuff starts coming in.

  8. Thats a stunning combination … one I’d never have been able to dream up! Looks really good

    🙂

  9. Kalyn, thanks for visiting my site today. Long time no see 🙂 Hope things are well with you. I just had a salad for lunch but mine didn’t look nearly as good as this one. Those hard-boiled eggs look as good as gold on that salad. Great to hear from you, stay in touch! M
