Rich and creamy low fat blue cheese, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms my salad nirvana.  Whips together in a snap.

1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup low fat sour cream
1/4 cup gorgonzola cheese crumbled
1T white wine vinegar

1 1/2 pound organic spinach trimmed, washed and dried
10 or more/less crimini mushrooms sliced
15 or more/less sweet organic cherry tomatoes cut in 1/4

Pile the spinach on a plate top with mushrooms and sprinkle with tomatoes. Top with a dollop of dressing and freshly ground pepper.

The dressing would be perfect on an iceberg wedge as well.
