Pear and Gorgonzola Green Salad

This is one of the simplest salads that you can make, but looks like it would be served at a gourmet restaurant!

15 minutes preparation + 15 minutes cooking


  • 2 lg pears, about 1 lb.
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 4 oz. Gorgonzola or other creamy blue cheese

Peel and core the pears; cut them into 1/2-inch chunks and toss with lemon juice.  Cover and refrigerate until needed, up to 2 hours.

When you’re ready to serve, toss the pears, cheese, walnuts and greens together with as much of the dressing as you like.  Serve immediately.
