Caramelized Pear Salad

Do you feel the nip in the September air? Fall is on the way and here is a great dish for that occasion.

1 tablespoon butter
2 large firm pears peeled, cored and sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoons minced shallots
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
10 ounces of mixed greens
¼ cup blue cheese
¼ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup grape tomatoes halved

In a skillet over medium heat melt the butter then add in the pear slices and brown sugar. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until pear slices are brown in color. Remove from heat and reserve.

Next whisk together the rice wine vinegar, cider vinegar, shallots, honey and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper then set aside.

Next place the mixed greens in a large bowl and add in the blue cheese, walnuts and tomatoes. Finally toss the mixture together with the reserved pears and the dressing.
