Roquefort Pear Salad

DSC_0307

I tried this salad for the first time when my dad was given some Roquefort cheese and had no idea what it could be used for or what it tasted like. The combination of flavors of the toppings with the dressing is great and it’s always a hit! I gobbled down 2 bowls of it last night.

Ingredients:

  • ›1 bag Romaine lettuce mix
  • ›2-3 pears, cored and chopped (you can peel them first if you want, but I don’t bother)
  • ›5 oz Roquefort or blue cheese, crumbled
  • ›1 avocado, diced
  • ›½ cup sliced green onions ›
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or sugared pecans

Dressing:

›1/3 cup olive oil ›3 tbs red wine vinegar ›1 ½ tsp mustard ›1 ½ tsp white sugar ›1 clove garlic, minced ›½ tsp salt ›Black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Mix dressing ingredients together, stir vigorously
  • Toss all components together and drizzle with dressing
