If you can't find Meyer lemons, use regular lemon juice and add a pinch of sugar to approximate the flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare dressing, combine shallots and mustard in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in 1/4 cup orange juice and next 3 ingredients (through pepper). Gradually add oil, stirring constantly with a whisk.

Step 2

To prepare salad, combine 2 tablespoons orange juice and pears, tossing to coat. Combine lettuces in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently to coat. Arrange about 1 cup lettuce mixture on each of 8 salad plates. Top each serving with about 1/4 cup pear and 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese.

This was probably too salty for MarkSZ because of the feta which is a pretty salty cheese. A chevre or other goat cheese is mild and creamy and should take the bite out of the tart lemon.

This vinaigrette is amazing! that's basically what we used this recipe for; totally adapted the salad - grilled chicken, toasted pecans, spinach and asian pair. delicious!

Very good and light. Perfect summer salad. I increased the amounts for the dressing then let everyone use what they wanted. Be careful of the salt it seemed a bit to salty at first till I diluted it with more of the other ingredients. Used Feta cheese since we had it already. Also if using a spring mix I found the Butter lettuce to be unnecessary, it just disappears in the mix.

Wonderful! Used regular lemons and added 1 tsp honey. Used walnut oil instead of olive for a lighter taste. This will be my go to salad dressing for winter greens.

I made this salad as directed using regular lemon & a pinch of sugar. Hubby said it was too tart. I agree. I loved the goat cheese & pears tho, they were lovey.

Nice, light salad dressing, pretty on the plate. Served following CL's chicken with lemon-leek linguine. Very good.
