Smoked Blue Cheese & Pear Salad with Arugula Greens

Tossed with a light balsamic vinaigrette, this crisp salad is both bold and beautiful.

Ingredients:
4-6 cups arugula greens
1 Asian pear, cored and thinly sliced
½ cup smoked blue cheese, crumbled
¾ cup olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:

1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic until well combined. Season to taste with salt and ground pepper.

2. In a large serving bowl, combine arugula greens and pearl slices. Toss with about half of the vinaigrette, adding more to taste as desired. Crumble blue cheese over top and serve.
