Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange pear slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil until nicely browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Pour port wine into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook until the wine is reduced by 1/2. Remove from the heat and cool. Pour the cooled wine into a blender or food processor, and add the shallots, garlic, mustard, and vinegar. Puree until smooth.
  3. Divide the salad greens evenly between four serving plates. Arrange some of the broiled pear slices over each pile of greens. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola cheese. Drizzle dressing over each plate, then sprinkle with walnuts. If you like, this can also be made in one large bowl instead of individual servings.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Very good! My friend and I made this for our New Year's Eve dinner and everyone raved! We added cranberries as well for color. Turned out great, would make again.

A restaurant in Memphis serves a salad like this, which I love. This was good, too, but too much trouble for a simple salad! Use balsamic or raspberry vinagrette instead. It's good with uncookec pears, too. Does need to be presented on individual plates.
