Salad blues?

I and my entire family enjoy salad, in summer no problem. But, during the winter months salad becomes a chore at times. I made this for all of us last night and really enjoyed it. I took several red pears and sliced them fairly thick, and then brushed with some walnut oil, a light sprinkle of ground cloves,salt and pepper and roasted them at 400 forturning them one time about 5-7 minutes, I also toasted some walnut pieces when done, I put them on top of some butter lettuce torn into good size pieces and drizzled with a walnut,shallot and some blackberry vinegar dressing..We consumed the whole thing nothing left.. Pretty good for a change of pace, and went well with the chicken.

Sounds yummy! You can also add some crumbled Roquefort to it.

Wow CJ, your creativity and inspiration just gets better and better, don't they!! Very original and appetizing, I may add some shaved aged pecorino, as the pairing of pears and pecorino is such a match made in heaven!

I think it was sheer panic and not being creative or inspirational Had 3 more kids than expected sooooo.
You know I have never had pecorino with pears, I've used parm, and I do like the pecorino I'll have to shave some over the salad and try that out on the gang..Course, we will have to guard the salad from the cheese thief Cade that boy wants pecorino or parmesan on everything except his chocolates

See I was right, I always had a feeling Cade may share a twin soul with me

Yeah, good, aged pecorino and pears are real treat together, also delicious simply taking a bite out of a fresh pear accompanied by a slab of the cheese!! Do try that!!
