Pear, Blue Cheese, Walnut and Bacon Salad

"A fresh change of taste. The amount of servings depends on the additions and naturally, whether it's served as a side or main meal."

  • Whisk together all vinaigrette ingredients until well blended; set aside.
  • In a small frying pan set on a medium heat, melt the butter, stir in the maple syrup or honey and then stir in the walnuts. Continue to heat the walnuts, stirring continuously, for approximately 2-3 minutes or until they are fragrant, caramelized and lightly browned. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  • Place the greens in a large salad bowl or, if individual servings are preferred, distribute them equally among 6 salad plates. Sprinkle over the pears, blue cheese and walnuts. Place over chicken then drizzle with dressing and toss.
  • Note: I find having the chicken warmed is superior to cold chicken.

    I've played around with this for several years. I find the bacon really doesn't add much. I omit the green onions from the dressing and add thinly sliced shallots to the salad. Sometimes I add dried cranberries

    Tasty. I only had head lettuce in the house, arugula would have been better. Having no walnuts, I used pecans. Blue cheese, pear and nuts is a clasic profile. Taste wise the bacon in unecessary in this recipe, in my opnion. I chose not to add chicken.
