Sweet pears, creamy blue cheese and crunchy pecans are tossed with baby greens. This salad makes a great lunch or first course for dinner.



Preheat the oven to 350° F. Toss the pecans and butter in a small bowl to evenly coat. Spread pecans in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until aromatic, 5 to 7 minutes. Allow to cool.

Whisk together vinegar, olive oil, mustard, honey, basil, thyme and savory; season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine greens and pears. Drizzle with vinaigrette and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with blue cheese and toasted pecans.
