Savory Plum Salad

This was a delicious salad!
I found the recipe on the Better Homes and Gardens website.
They are one of my favorites for finding new recipes!
1 or 2 heads radicchio (about 4 cups)
1/2 of a 6-oz. bag baby spinach (4 cups)
4 plums, quartered and pitted
1/2 cup pecan halves, toasted
6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
2 Tbsp. raspberry vinegar
1 Tbsp. Dijon-style mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

1. Cut radicchio in wedges. Place in salad bowl with spinach, plums, nuts and bacon.
2. In small bowl whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil; drizzle on salad. Toss gently to combine. Sprinkle cheese on top. Serves 6 to 8.
