Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Even your salad can be a crowd pleaser. Just top it off with some sweet pear and funky blue cheese. Not a fan of blue cheese? Swap it for something a bit more neutral like goat cheese or even feta. Everyone will love this pear and blue cheese salad.

Ingredients:

1 pear, diced
½ cup pecans
4-5 cups lettuce, chopped
2 Tbsp. vinegar
1 Tbsp. garlic, crushed
Pinch dried basil
½ Tbsp. honey
½ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
⅛ cup olive oil
3 oz. cup crumbled blue (or goat) cheese

Directions:

Mix pear, pecans, and lettuce in salad bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together vinegar, garlic, basil, honey, salt, and pepper.

Slowly add oil and blend with a wire whisk. Just before serving, toss the dressing with the salad and sprinkle with blue cheese.
