Spinach Salad with Pears and Walnuts

Pears are one of the few fruits that improve in flavor and texture after they're picked. The sweetness of the pear slices balances the tangy vinaigrette and sharp cheese in this colorful salad.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup salad, 2 teaspoons goat cheese, and 1 1/2 teaspoons walnuts)
