but it is my momma’s salad! i had this salad for the first time in france with my family a couple years ago. my mom is always full of recipe surprises!
not only is this salad easy, but it’s seemingly fancy and will impress everyone! i served this at my boyfriend’s BBQ and there was none left! the boys actually wanted more!
it’s a great side dish for a heavy meat & potatoes meal. i often have it by itself… all by myself! sometimes you just need something fresh & different. i do love the caesars and classic salads, but some days are special!
so this is my gift to you!
pear, avo & blue cheese salad
- 1/2 bag of both arugula and watercress (i often do only arugula to make life easier)
- 1/2 container of crumbled blue cheese
- 2 pears, peeled & diced
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup malt vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tsp. brown sugar
- 1 shallot, finely diced
- s & p
combine first four ingredients in a large salad bowl.
combine vinegar, sugar, oil, shallot and S&P. whisk.
pour over salad.
note: salad quantities are suggestions! if you life more blue cheese, go for it! i love tons of avo!
