Blue cheese and pear are a classic combination, and adding pear juice to the salad dressing gives the entire salad a new depth of rich flavor.
Created April 9, 2012

Ingredients

  • 1 head Boston lettuce, torn
  • 1 pint Campari tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 small red onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pear juice
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, toss lettuce, tomatoes, onion and cheese; set aside.
  • 2
    In jar with tight-fitting lid, shake remaining ingredients until well blended. Drizzle dressing over salad; toss to coat. Serve immediately.

  • Can’t find pear juice? Use shelf-stable pear nectar instead.
  • If Campari tomatoes aren’t available at your grocery store, substitute 2 or 3 small plum (Roma) tomatoes.
  • Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Stilton cheese would all be delicious in this salad.
