Pear-Pecan Blue cheese Salad

Attention. This is the best salad ever. What’s that you say? You don’t like blue cheese? You do now. Eat it.

Pear-Pecan-Blue cheese Salad

Mixed greens


blue cheese (gorgonzola is my favorite)

candied pecans (store bought or homemade)

2 pears, chopped

1/2 c. maple syrup

Sweet, light salad dressing: A maple vinaigrette would be ideal–I just make my own!

Warm 1/2 c. maple syrup in small pot. When syrup is hot, dump pears in and stir occasionally, until pears begin to soften. Remove from heat and drain. Serve salad topped with pecans, drained pears, blue cheese and vinaigrette. Pass out from deliciousness.
