Chopped salad with avocado and gorgonzola

The second meal of this week is an easy salad. You can put it together in 15 minutes and it is so yummy! It doesn’t seem like avocado and gorgonzola go together- but they do! They are so delicious together in this salad. It makes my mouth water just thinking about the creamy, tangy gorgonzola with the yummy balsamic vinaigrette. Make this salad- you won’t regret it =)
