Gorgonzola Salad

To keep this salad fresh for a few days, assemble the ingredients in a bowl starting with the lettuce first. Keep the Romaine on one side of the bowl, and Arugula on the other side. Once the lettuce is in the bowl, place the remaining ingredients on top (grouped together by ingredients). Do not toss together or add dressing until you are just about ready to eat it. To keep the apples from browning, rub them with a little lemon juice.
