Autumn Pear Salad

This beautiful salad will be a simple yet fancy addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. Poaching a pear is so easy and the bacon and blue cheese just put this plate over the top!




For this salad you will need:

Two packages of Spring Mix/Baby Spinach lettuce

10 Seckel Pears

8 oz chunk of Oscar’s Blue Cheese

2 packages of Oscar’s Hickory Smoked Bacon ( Or your favorite flavor)

One Cup of Chopped Walnuts


For the Maple Cider Vinaigrette:

1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

2 Tablespoons of Pure Maple Syrup

1 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard

1/4 Teaspoon of Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Pepper

2/3 Cup of Olive Oil


If you are planning a buffet, this salad could certainly be made on one large serving platter.

    May I please have your recipe for the vinaigrette that you use for your beet salad? I think you call it “honey balsamic.” I just love it and have tried duplicating it with no luck.
