Gorgonzola Pear Salad with Pomegranate Dressing

To prepare pears wash well and then core them with a apple corer, leaving the skin on. After coring pears push Gorgonzola cheese into center of pear, packing it in tightly. Wrap pears in plastic wrap and chill for a few hours or you may serve them immediately. Wash Bibb lettuce or spring mix for salad greens and place on a chilled salad platter. When ready to serve slice pears into thin circles and place on top of salad. Sprinkle top of salad with Craisins and drizzle on dressing. If you would like an extra crunch add some walnuts too.

  • 1/3 cup Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp. honey

  • Boston Bibb lettuce or Spring mix salad
  • 1 pear, serves 2
  • Crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • Craisins
  • Walnuts, optional

If you do not want to take the time to stuff the pears you may just add pear slices and crumbled Gorgonzola on top of the salad instead. Enjoy, and stay cool!
