Arugula & Pear Salad

Besides giving this salad a nutty crunch, walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants. For an added flavor dimension, crumble some Gorgonzola cheese over each salad.

Serves 8

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 5 cups butterhead lettuce, (Bibb or Boston), torn into bite-size pieces
  • 4 cups arugula, trimmed

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare dressing: Whisk shallot, broth, oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 2

To prepare salad: Toast walnuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool.
