We concocted this on a day so cold, we even wanted our salad to warm us up.
Warm Pear Salad
- 1 bosc pear, thinly sliced and cored (Peeled or unpeeled)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp fig jam
- 4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
- 4 cups fresh spinach torn in bite sized pieces
- almonds, pecans or hazelnuts
Divide spinach among four small plates. Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet. When starting to bubble throw in the pears. Saute for about five minutes. Pears should be tender, but still have some bite. Stir in jam and toss to coat. Turn off heat and sprinkle with blue cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Divide pears among four plates. Sprinkle with a few nuts if desired.
