Sorry to be so lax about posting lately. Life has been very busy, but in a good way. That means lots of work for us which is a very good thing. I have missed being a part of this wonderful blogging community this week!
Today’s Lagniappe: Pear, Blue Cheese and Walnut Salad
The pears at the grocery store are perfect right now! You can use the vinaigrette here or check out this past post for some other vinaigrette ideas. I used the classic vinaigrette with a touch of honey. Delish!
* 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
* 1 medium shallot, minced
* 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
* 1/2 cup olive oil
* 1 5-ounce bag mixed baby greens
* 2 large ripe pears, halved, cored, thinly sliced lengthwise
* 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
* 1 cup walnuts, toasted, coarsely chopped
Whisk first 4 ingredients in small bowl to blend. Gradually whisk in oil. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.
Toss greens in large bowl with enough dressing to coat. Divide greens among 6 plates. Top with pear slices, dividing equally. Sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Drizzle lightly with remaining dressing and serve.
