Pear-Walnut-Gorgonzola Salad

The kids love pear season, and so do I. Pears disappear off our counter so fast!

I made this grown-up salad for my birthday a few weeks ago and it's become my new fall favorite. I can't wait to make it again--after a trip for more pears, of course. It makes a perfect weekday lunch for two.
  • A big bowl of greens (leaf lettuce and spinach was a great combination)
  • Slices of sweet red onion
  • A handful of toasted walnuts (pecans would be good, but walnuts say "autumn" to me)
  • Dried cranberries
  • Chunks of yellow-ripe pear
  • A generous topping of Gorgonzola crumbles
  • All drizzled with tangy raspberry vinaigrette
