Pear Salad with agave and champagne vinegar dressing


This is a common salad recipe and very easy, but I am posting it for my friend Jen who wanted the dressing ratio. It would be weird to post just that. The first time I made it was for a holiday dinner party and my good friend Leslie actually put it together for me. If you know Leslie then you already know that she made it look amazing and cozy! We made it as an appetizer and served it in little dessert dishes. It was so good!!!!!! Here’s what we did…

Slice this stuff up and put it in a bowl or a glass if you want to get fancy:

Pear (I used Korean Pears that our friends brought us – thanks Kei & Donny!!)

Salad Greens (I used baby greens)

Chopped Walnuts

Gorgonzola cheese, or Blue Cheese, or Gouda Cheese or all three!!

Drizzle with Agave and a a little bit of Champagne Vinegar or White Wine Vinegar. I don’t have ratios for you Jen, I just drizzle until it feels right!
I know you will feel it too.

    This is my favorite salad ever!!! We have had it several nights in a row! But what the heck are you doing up writing recipes at 1:00 in the morning! What happened? Did someone beg you to finally post all these yummy recipes? Some people – so inconsiderate! Sheesh!
