Pear Salad with Blue Cheese, Walnuts and Pomegranate

Combining mixed baby greens with some favorite elements of a cheese plate, this succulent salad makes a stunning starter. The juicy pomegranate seeds and slightly tart cider dressing brighten toasted walnuts, thin slices of grainy pear and a potent blue cheese. Any variety of blue works here, from mild Gorgonzola to more powerful Stilton and Roquefort, all perfect matches for pear.

Tri Colore Insalata

Tri Colore Insalata--or three color salad--is bright, colorful, healthy, and easy. This salad uses arugula, radicchio, endive and Parmesan cheese. Then, it's just dressed with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and a little salt. Great served with a grilled steak!
