Roasted Red Onion and Pear Salad
With roasted onions, fresh ears, goat cheese, almonds, and dried cranberries, this salad tastes as good as it looks.
Why This Recipe Works
In this Roasted Red Onion and Pear Salad recipe, we found that browning the onions in a hot oven until softened and browned tempered their strong flavor. Dried thyme tasted dusty and bland, so we prefer fresh chopped thyme in the recipe. Regular almonds will do in a pinch, but smokehouse almonds, or salted, smoked almonds, added valuable flavor to the Roasted Red Onion and Pear Salad recipe.
