Summer Pear Salad + Red Wine Dijon Dressing

R.B. loves to cook (thank goodness!), and he likes experimenting with different ingredients. Recently, he created the most delicious salad and dressing. We eat it almost once a week, so I thought I'd share so you can enjoy it too!

What you need for the dressing:

1 tablespoon dijon mustard
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

All you have to do is whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl, and chill before pouring over your salad.

What you need for the salad (for two servings):

1 6 oz. bag pre-washed butter lettuce 
1 or 2 Bosc pears, chopped
Honey goat cheese (found at Publix), or regular goat cheese crumbles to taste
Whole dried tart cherries to taste

Tips from Chef R.B.: 

1. Sprinkle lemon juice over chopped pears to prevent browning
2. Sprinkle a little extra pepper on the dressing after mixing
3. Pour the dressing over the lettuce first before adding other toppings

The taste is perfectly sweet and tart and goes well with anything on the grill. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
