Spinach Salad with Gorgonzola, Pistachios, and Pepper Jelly Vinaigrette


1/4 cup red pepper jelly (I used Tastefully Simple Sweet Pepper Jelly and it was AWESOME)
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 cups fresh baby spinach
1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup dry roasted pistachios, chopped
1/4 cup sliced red onion


Place jelly in a 1-cup glass measure. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Add cider vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk until blended. Cool to room temperature.

Combine spinach, cheese, and onion in a large bowl. Drizzle vinegar mixture over spinach mixture; toss well. Sprinkle each serving with nuts. Serve immediately.
