I tasted this salad the other night while out for dinner at McNally Robinson’s restaraunt “Prairie Ink” (a great local place with great ambiance and occasionally vibrant live music) and decided that I had to try making it at home. After a quick trip to Sobey’s, I was armed with my ingredients and ready to recreate this delicious, fresh and light salad.
Combine the following ingredients:
- 3 cups Green leaf lettuce
- 2-3 tbsp Blue Cheese (crumbled)
- 2-3 tbsp Pecans (toasted & chopped)
- 1/2 cup Pear – can be fresh or canned – I used a fresh winter pear (cubed)
- 3-4 tbsp of homemade Blueberry Vinaigrette
Serve into a big bowl and enjoy a light and healthy meal. I also think this salad would be great served with a side of honey glazed chicken or even salmon.
Very yummy! I made this with an apple instead of pear (I didnt want to go to the store just for one pear lol). I also made the vinegarette with blackberries (again, just what i had on hand) added a tiny squirt of lemon juice to help with apple browning. Very very good!
Sounds delicious! We are all about making do with the ingredients you have on hand!
