Pear Salad with Goat Cheese and Walnuts


Mealthy Tip

Look for pears that are firm, but have a little bit of give when squeezed. Blue cheese also works well in this recipe. Try it in place of the goat cheese. You could also swap the pears for sliced apples for a crunchier texture, and try pecans in place of the walnuts.

I'm not really a salad person, but I hosted a small gathering at my house for a friend and decided to make a large batch of this recipe for the guests. Everyone loved it! People kept asking if it was ordered from a restaurant, and when I told them I made it they were really impressed. I have to also admit, it was really delicious! The pear, vinegar, and goat cheese worked so well together.

i made this to go with an oven roasted pork loin. We also used Bosc pears. It turned out really, really good.

Perfect appetizer salad for dinner. I made it to go with my cast iron pan roasted chicken (recipe also on this site). Great tasting salad, especially with the walnuts.

Made a couple adjustments here. Used blue cheese and sliced apples. Loved the crunchy texture and flavor.
