Warm Pear Salad with Blue Cheese and Pecans
It's rare that Nick Dewar really, really likes a salad. However, if that salad includes blue cheese, Nick will love it. This is that type of salad.
Made by Louwrens at Chris and Mardi's house (our old house) in Nassau for a great potluck reunion afternoon by the pool - June 2018.
3 pears sliced into thin wedges
2 red onions sliced into thin wedges
Salt & Pepper
15 ml honey
30 ml butter
2 packets of mixed greens
100 g pecan nuts roasted and chopped
50 g blue cheese crumbled
Blue Cheese Dressing
160 ml cream
15 ml olive oil
100 g blue cheese crumbled
