Perfectly Pear Salad

The unrelenting cold of winter can be so draining on your skin and your spirit.  But the good thing is few foods can be more refreshing than a salad.  Partner that salad with the smooth, warming effects of goat cheese and the sweet crunch of red bartlett pear and it's a perfect combination.

For the salad
1 box of fresh greens
1 cup of chopped walnuts
8 oz goat cheese crumbles
2 red Bartlett pears cut into slices

You can choose to toss all these elements together or to top your salad as you go.  One caution: the goat cheese is very creamy and as it temperature acclimates it will loose it consistency especially after you top this salad with it's dressing.

For the Dressing
3 tablespoons of honey
1 heaping tablespoon of dijon mustard
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar
3 tablespoons oil*
   *I prefer the light taste of the grapeseed oil, but olive works just as well

Whisk all of the ingredients together very well and top off your salad with a deliciously tangy and sweet dressing.
