Pear Salad

My friend Marilyn suggested this would be a great entrée salad with the addition of chicken. I concur. I think grilled and sliced chicken breast would be great. I'm not sure where I bought my pear vinegar; I think I got it at one of the local wineries, but don't hold me to it! I found it on line here:

Pear Salad

1 Bartlett pear, thinly sliced
2 bags of Triple Heart Lettuce
1/2 cup crumbled Blue Cheese
1 cup dried Cranberries
1 cup glazed Walnuts
Pear Vinaigrette Dressing, recipe below

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl. Serves 10 – 12.

Pear Vinaigrette Dressing

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup Pear Vinegar
¼ teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Put all ingredients in small container, cover and shake to mix.


  1. Love this salad! I also change out the pear and put in strawberries using a balsamic dressing. Tasty. Glad I clicked on your kitchen blog! I am always in desperate need of new receipes. I live with a foodie. (food snob)

  2. OMG I love this one, imagining it makes me hungry already. Fruits are abundant for now I will try this one. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Pear salad is great, I do a similar one but I-ve never tried pear vinegar, might try do do some to try out. Always nice with recipes that inspire!
