Pear, Walnut And Blue Cheese Salad With Maple Dijon Dressing
I first posted this recipe for a Pear, Walnut and Bleu Cheese Salad five years ago, when I was using a camera on the verge of dying and when I had to use pecans in lieu of my beloved walnuts. So it seemed appropriate when I made it again this past week that I do a re-posting. I absolutely love the pear and bleu cheese salad at Nordstrom’s Cafe so decided a few years ago to try making something similar at home. Their salad is simple; pear, bleu cheese, and candied walnuts served over mixed greens; I don’t recall if the red onions were their idea or mine but no matter, they are a perfect complement both in taste and color. The dressing served with the salad at the cafe, while good, was their bottled Champagne vinaigrette and I just wanted something a bit different and thought. . .
