Romaine Salad with Mandarin Oranges and Gorgonzola

My hubby has been working nights lately so you know what that means... it's dinner for one. Sometimes I will make a full meal and wait for hubby to get home and then we can eat together. There are some nights when he gets home to late, so for nights like that I turn to something simple like this salad. The weather has been getting warmer and this is the perfect way to get ready for summer. I made this one with some Mandarin Oranges and Gorgonzola Cheese that I had on hand but really you could use any fruit/cheese combo. I ran out of pecans ( had 3 left , how does that happen?? )  so I threw some pine nuts in and it was Yummy!!

Romaine Salad

This is perfect for when my husband travels. I usually don't eat very healthy when he's gone, but I think your salad will help me out!

It looks delishious... sometimes I love when my hubby is not eating at home b/c that means I can have a light healthy meal like this salad.
