Roasted Pear Salad

I’m not a big salad person. I prefer heartier ways of consuming my leafy greens, but every once in a while I crave a refreshing salad. This combination of dried fruit, toasted walnuts, creamy blue cheese with the soft roasted pear is delicious. It has such an elegant feel, yet it doesn’t require many ingredients and is so easy to prepare. Liven up salad nights with this easy concept.

3 lemons, juiced
