Ingredients
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 4 cup salad greens, washed
  • 4 Bartlett or Anjou pears
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. In a small skillet, dry-roast walnuts over medium heat for 1 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Finely chop. Meanwhile, arrange ½ cup salad greens on each of eight plates; set aside.
  2. Cut pears in half lengthwise. With a melon baller, remove seeds and make a small, round cavity in each pear half. Cut cheese into eight pieces; shape each into a ball. Roll in walnuts and place one in each pear cavity. Arrange pears on lettuce.
  3. Pour vinegar into a small bowl. Add oil in a fine stream, whisking constantly until smooth. Drizzle evenly over pears; sprinkle with any remaining walnuts.
