    • Prepare the Salad Greens:
      • Wash and thoroughly dry the mixed salad greens. Place them in a large salad bowl.
    • Add the Grapes and Cheese:
      • Halve the grapes and add them to the salad bowl with the greens.
      • Crumble the Gorgonzola cheese and sprinkle it over the salad.
    • Toast the Nuts:
      • In a dry pan over medium heat, toast the chopped walnuts (or pecan nuts) for a few minutes until they become fragrant and lightly toasted. Keep a close eye on them, as they can burn quickly. Remove them from the heat and let them cool slightly.
    • Make the Dressing:
      • In a small bowl, whisk together the extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper until well combined.
    • Toss the Salad:
      • Drizzle the dressing over the salad ingredients in the bowl.
      • Gently toss everything together to ensure even coating.
    • Serve:
      • Transfer the salad to individual plates or a serving platter.
      • Sprinkle the toasted walnuts (or pecan nuts) over the top.
    • Enjoy:
      • Serve your Tossed Green Salad with Grapes, Gorgonzola, and Walnuts (or pecan nuts) immediately as a refreshing and flavorful appetizer or side dish.

    Substitution Note: If you prefer pecan nuts or have them on hand, feel free to substitute them for the walnuts in this recipe. Both nuts will add a delightful crunch and rich flavor to the salad.
