DIRECTIONS

  • Make candied pecans.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the pomegranate seeds, grapes, red onion, and the blue cheese.
  • Divide torn lettuce leaves among 8 salad plates, and top each salad with the fruit mixture.
  • Halve and core pears and cut into 1/2-inch slices-- put a pear half, skin side up, in the center of each salad.
  • Arrange candied pecans around the pears.
  • Just before serving, heat balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat, cooking and stirring until brown sugar dissolves. Off the heat, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Drizzle warm dressing over each salad, sprinkle with orange zest, and serve right away.
