Caramelised grilled pear slices, Gorgonzola cheese, walnuts and mixed greens are tossed together in a deliciously light dressing. Serve as a starter with a side of crusty bread.
To toast walnuts, place them in a dry frying pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and fragrant, about 8 minutes.
Very good! My friend and I made this for our New Year's Eve dinner and everyone raved! We added cranberries as well for color. Turned out great, would make again. - 01 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A restaurant in Memphis serves a salad like this, which I love. This was good, too, but too much trouble for a simple salad! Use balsamic or raspberry vinagrette instead. It's good with uncookec pears, too. Does need to be presented on individual plates. - 12 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
A few restaurants nearby make salads like this and it's one of my favorites. This version is very good as well...I loved the dressing! Very nice presentation as well. Thx!! - 16 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
