Feta Pear Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 head lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 3 pears - peeled, cored and chopped
  • 5 ounces Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and diced
  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup pecans
  • cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Method

1. In a skillet over medium heat, stir 1/4 cup of sugar together with the pecans. Continue stirring gently until sugar has melted and caramelized the pecans. Carefully transfer nuts onto waxed paper. Allow to cool, and break into pieces.

2. For the dressing, blend oil, vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, mustard, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper.

3. In a large serving bowl, layer lettuce, pears, feta, avocado, and green onions. Pour dressing over salad, sprinkle with pecans, and serve.

Notes

Can substitute Roquefort cheese for the feta. Can also just toast pecans-don't have to caramelize them.
