Blue Cheese and Pear Salad
Serve with any grilled meat or poultry

Servings: 6

• 1 garlic clove, peeled and halved
• 2 tablespoons lemon juice
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1/8 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
• 2 medium ripe pears, cored and thinly sliced
• 8 cups torn mixed salad greens

Rub garlic clove over the bottom and sides of a large salad bowl; discard garlic. In the bowl, combine the lemon juice, honey and salt. Add pears; gently toss to coat. Add the greens, walnuts and cheese; toss to coat.

NOTE: I like to make sure and include some red leaf lettuce or radicchio for some added color.
