Green Salad with Roasted Pears and Blue Cheese
From Cook's Country
Green Salad with Roasted Pears and Blue Cheese is the perfect balance of sweet, bitter, and tart to highlight the flavor of the fruit and pungent cheese. For the green salad component, we blended Bibb lettuce and watercress for flavor, color, and textural contrast. We tossed the pears with a maple syrup and ginger mixture and roasted them at high heat to caramelize the fruit sugars quickly. Crumbling a chunk of blue cheese just before serving ensured a flavorful, moist texture—the finishing touch to our Green Salad with Roasted Pears and Blue Cheese.
Serves 4 to 6
Pears can be roasted up to three hours in advance, but keep them at room temperature until ready to serve.
