Salad with Honey Roasted Pears and Goat Cheese

  • 2-3 cups (500-750 ml) of your favourite green salad
  • 1 pear, fresh but not too ripe
  • sprinkle of kosher salt and black pepper
  • drizzle of Chinook Honey, flavour of your choice
  • goat cheese, as desired
  • roasted nuts, such as walnuts, as desired
Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Slice pear in half. Core with a melon baller. Halve each half to make quarters, then slice each quarter a few times to make a fan.
Place the pear slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with honey and roast in the oven until honey is caramellike.
Put greens in a bowl and sprinkle goat cheese and nuts onto the salads. Top with pear slices. Dress with a light vinaigrette.

Makes 2 servings.
