Pear and Arugula Salad with Honey-Lemon Dressing

This salad is a fresh take on the traditional pear and blue-cheese pairing. Sesame seeds add some nice texture and subtle flavor, but feel free to leave them out!


  • Two pears, diced
  • 5-8oz baby arugula
  • Blue cheese of choice, we like Gorgonzola
  • Candied walnuts
  • 1 cup golden cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Honey-Lemon Dressing
  • Salt & pepper to taste


Toss arugula, pear and cherry tomatoes in a bowl. Dress lightly with Honey-Lemon dressing. Add in blue cheese to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Toss again.

Put a couple scoops worth of salad onto a salad plate and top with candied walnuts (to taste).

Makes 4 small servings.
