Salad Juxtapositions

I hope you excuse me with all my salad posts. It’s almost the end of warm days in Boston and soon enough I will make my famous soup season switch. A lot of people have mixed feelings about mixing their greens with fruits and nuts. While I am not a fan of Waldorf salad or raspberry vinaigrette dressing, there is something delicious about mixing honeyed walnuts, pears and blue cheese. Even my roomate who despises apples and other non-sense ingredients that should not be seen in a respectable salad, enjoyed this dish.

Ingredients: 1 head of butter lettuce, 2 Bosc (or any sweet pears that you like) pears, 20 walnuts, 2 tablespoons honey, 4 oz good-quality blue cheese, 1 lemon, 1/2 cup olive oil, salt and pepper to season

Begin by adding honey to a skillet or pan. Drop the walnuts and stir to cover.Cook for 5 minutes and take off the stove.

Next chop up the butter lettuce and add to a bowl

Thinly slice and dice the pears

Finally crumble up some blue cheese

Mix all together and make the dressing by mixing fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper

Pour the dressing over the salad and serve
