I am in the mood for salads lately. Whenever summer rolls around that's pretty much all I feel like cooking and eating. Probably because they're cool and there is minimal cooking involved! :)
Do you have a favorite salad recipe??? I would LOVE to have it. And maybe I'll even share it here if it's ok with you??? Email me or leave it in the comments so I can give it a try! :)
Here's one I'm anxious to try, courtesy of Country Living Mag...
|1 tablespoon(s)||unsalted butter|
|2||Anjou pears, each cored and cut into 12 slices|
|1 tablespoon(s)||Dijon mustard|
|1/4 cup(s)||fresh lemon juice|
|2 tablespoon(s)||maple syrup|
|1/4 cup(s)||olive oil, extra-virgin|
|1/8 teaspoon(s)||fresh-ground pepper|
|1 head(s)||head romaine lettuce, washed, trimmed, and cut|
|1 ounce(s)||(about 1/3 cup) domestic blue cheese, such as Black River Blue, crumbled|
|1||small red onion, thinly sliced|
- Melt the butter over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add the pear slices and cook until the pears are golden but still slightly firm to the touch -- about 6 minutes. Set aside.
- Combine the mustard, lemon juice, and maple syrup in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with the salt and pepper.
- Toss the arugula, romaine, blue cheese, pecans, onion, and prepared pears together with the dressing in a large bowl. Serve immediately.
Enjoy!! Have a great day!
