Recipe of the Week – Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad
(From the Salad Collection at emealsforyou.com)
We are back in Lawrenceville doing some work on my mother-in-law’s house and cooking up a storm in the kitchen to “keep our energy level up.” One of the hard parts of meal planning is to come up with different salads to go with the meals for an extended timeframe. Tonight we will have the Pear, Walnut and Blue Cheese Salad, having moved on from the Wedge Salad of yesterday. Combining the fresh flavors of the pear, the tartness of the lemon dressing on the lettuce with the sweetness of the walnuts and the honey and the saltiness of the blue cheese, makes this a good start to any meal.
