In this pear walnut salad, slice pear, shallots, blue cheese and walnuts top leafy romaine and is drizzled with the most amazing pear vinaigrette!

Didn’t I just posted a salad that had sliced pears in it? In my defense, that salad only triggered this nasty chain reaction to make more salads, and more salads with pears, and pear salads drizzled with a delicious pear vinaigrette. Overkill? I think not!


Someone please tell me that I’m not the only one who dreams about making a pear salad dressing? Can I be? Hello?

Have you ever had a pear vinaigrette? I haven’t… well, until this afternoon. While some devilish brownies baked in the oven, it only felt right to balance my chocolate recipe lunch dessert out with a little salad. And since pears are all over the place these days, I picked a few up, nabbed some pear vinegar and juice, then {fingers crossed} sought out to make me a pear vinaigrette.  Before I show you the goods, I first want to cover a few “salad basics”.

There are three major things that make up a good salad.

1. Good lettuce. I’m talkin’ bout romaine, spinach or arugula etc… Iceberg is aiiight, but to me it

2. Toasted nuts or seeds. Throw your favorite nuts in a dry pan and toast until they’re fragrant… and by fragrant I don’t mean burnt. mmm k?

3. Cheese. Really any will do, like feta, brie, any form of blue cheese, oh and Parmesan. Just to name a few I’m really not picky. It cheese… ya know?

I was a little nervous about making a pear vinaigrette. There was only going to be two options for results… It was either going to bomb big time… or majorly rock-the-house-yo. And, well… it was frickin’ awesome. I saved you the trouble by not posting the whole rigmarole of slicing a pear, toasting walnuts and all that jazz… but if you wanna know… you can get the gist by. So instead…

In a medium bowl add three tablespoons of pear juice.

Then add one tablespoon pear vinegar.

While whisking like a crazy person, slowly stream in two tablespoons of olive oil.


Add the leaves of a few sprigs of thyme and grind in some fresh black pepper. Whisk some more.

Chill if you want to, but it’s not necessary.

I quickly poured it over top my salad of baby romaine, sliced shallots, toasted walnuts, pear slices, blue cheese and then delicately sprinkled with coarse sea salt. I died.

And it looked like this. Ohhhh… this pear walnut salad was good, and it wasn’t because I skipped breakfast, had two cups of coffee, made brownies and had some severe-low-sugar-mixed-with-too-much-coffee “shakes”. I promise, because I made it the next day and it was equally awesome.
