10 cup mixed baby lettuces
2 red Bartlett or other red-skinned pears, sliced into wedges (8 ounces
1/4 cup walnut halves, toasted and roughly chopped
1 ounce Manchego cheese, thinly shaved
3 tablespoons walnut oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons pomegranate arils (seeds)
How to Make It
Divide lettuce, pear wedges, walnuts, and cheese among 4 plates.
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, water, mustard, honey, salt, and pepper. On each salad, drizzle 1 1/2 tablespoons dressing, then sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon pomegranate arils on top. Serve.
I really enjoyed this salad. It is light yet filling (given the pears and walnuts!) and I also liked the vinaigrette. Highly recommend - especially to cut back on some calories in a tasty, enjoyable way :)
