DIRECTIONS

  • Soak celery in a bowl of ice water for 15 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Whisk together in a large bowl the vinegar, maple syrup and salt. Add pears and stir gently to coat. Add celery, cheese and pecans, stirring to combine. Season with pepper.
  • Place the 6 lettuce leaves on plates and divide the salad, placing a portion on top of the lettuce on each plate.
  • Serve either chilled or at room temperature.
  • NOTE: To toast the nuts, cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until fragrant and slightly browned (about 2 to 4 minutes).
  • VARIATION: Instead of cheddar and pecans, try a good Parmesan and toasted walnuts.
