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.
