Arugula and Pear Salad

arugula pear
This is a great addition to a main course, specifically for lunch or brunch. We enjoy it as a side to eggs or a half sandwich. It’s so simple and one of my favorites.

1/2 cup walnut halves
5 to 6 cups arugula, cleaned and dried
1 Bosc or Anjou pear, thinly sliced
1 lemon
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces Gorgonzola (get a piece that will crumble easily for you) or blue cheese crumbles

Toast nuts in small pan over medium heat until fragrant. Cool.
Combine arugula and pear in a salad bowl, add nuts then dress the salad with lemon juice and olive oil, salt and pepper. Top salad with lots of blue cheese crumbles.
