Pear-Walnut Salad With Artisan Bleu Cheese
15 mins (prep 15)
9 ingredients
6 servings
I used mixed greens, pears, honey and bleu cheese-all from Oregon sources in this salad. For alternate versions, try two different varieties of pears. For example, I tested Forelle and Anjou pears. Rogue Creamery artisan cheesemaker supplied the bleu cheese (in particular their Smokey Blue), too. A light dressing tops it off. From a local source. Makes 6 small dinner salads. A perfect salad for a brunch or light meal. Happy 2009!
