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.
Pour the dressing over the salad and serve
