Warm Pear and Cheese Sandwiches
Place 1(½-ounce) slice kasseri cheese on each of 16(1-ounce) slices whole-grain bread. Place bread in a single layer on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until golden. Peel, core, and thinly slice 3 ripe pears; divide pear slices evenly among 8 bread slices. Place 10 cups mixed salad greens in a large bowl. Combine ¼ cup thinly sliced shallot, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper. Slowly add 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, stirring constantly with whisk. Drizzle dressing over greens; toss to coat. Top each serving with about ½ cup greens mixture, 1 tablespoon roasted pumpkin seeds, and remaining bread slices.
