Roasted Pear Salad

I found this Roasted Pear Salad in Publix Grape Magazine. It's very similar to this salad that I've been making for years.



2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon honey
salt and pepper

Mix in a small jar and shake it up to mix. This dressing covers 2 side dish salads generously. (Publix says it covers 4 salads, I don't think so.........)


Roasted pear slices (directions below)
Crumbled blue cheese
Pecans, chopped

Place lettuce on plates or in bowls. Top with pears, blue cheese, pecans and dressing.

Roasted Pears: Line a baking pan with foil. Place peeled and sliced pears on pan. Drizzle with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix it up and spread out on pan. Bake at 425 degrees for about 25 minutes.

We had this salad with Seared Scallops and Seasoned Cheese Grits.

I make a similar dressing but instead of evoo, I use fat free mayo. Super yummy!
