pear and gorgonzola salad

Being that I am no longer preggo
 I am returning to my former
 fishetarian ways.
 {a real, even if Blogger doesn't think so!}

So...I'll be sharing more {red}meat-free recipes
on occasion.
This is a 
great. summer. salad.
Pear and Gorgonzola!
(Pretty sure I got this recipe from they used apples, not pears.)
You will need:
baby spring mix
can of sliced pears
crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1/4 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup sugar {this is to make the walnuts "candied" - heat sugar and walnuts in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until coated. Transfer to a sheet of tinfoil to cool.}

Dressing *whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl.
2 tb olive oil
2 tb white vinegar
2 tb raspberry vinaigrette

Toss salad ingredients with dressing and serve!
Tastes lovely with a glass of white wine on an evening in late summer. :)

Well, the babe is sleeping and Bachelor Pad is about to come on...
life is good.  
 It's the little things these days!
