It's mmmmm...Monday "The Perfect Salad"

The Perfect Pear & Gorgonzola Salad
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

This spectacular salad is a gold medal favorite in our house featuring fresh juicy pears, candied pecans, crumbled Gorgonzola and raspberry vinaigrette on a bed of fresh greens. The original ― and still by far the favorite ― is from the Crow's Nest in Santa Cruz, where the upstairs Breakwater Bar & Grill offers the salad as an entree with grilled skirt steak! We make constant re-creations of this meal-sized salad in our house and frequently bring friends to experience the original. Here's how you can make this yummy salad at home too...

  • Mixed greens
  • Fresh pears, sliced
  • Candied pecans
  • Crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • Raspberry vinaigrette
  • Grilled skirt steak or chicken (optional)

Preparation Instructions:
  1. Prepare a bed of mixed greens. 
  2. Top with a medley of pears, pecans and Gorgonzola. 
  3. Drizzle with raspberry vinaigrette.
  4. Enjoy!
