A very special thank you to Nan’s Fan Toni Evans for this fabulous recipe!
  • 1 to 2 Bosc pears, cut into ½ inch cubes (Asian pears will also work well)
  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ¾ cup pecan halves, toasted
  • 2 heads romaine lettuce, torn into pieces
  • ¼ cup PastamorĂ© White Balsamic with Pear Vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 5 basil leaves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Combine pears, cheese, pecans and romaine in a large bowl.

In a small bowl whisk to combine vinegar, garlic, basil, honey, salt and pepper.  Slowly add the olive oil while continuing to whisk.  Add to salad and toss just before serving.
