IngredientsServes: 4

  • 2 pears, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 250ml port wine
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 325g assorted salad greens
  • 175g Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 120g walnuts, toasted and chopped

MethodPrep:20min ›Cook:10min ›Ready in:30min

  1. Preheat the grill. Arrange pear slices in a single layer on a baking tray. Grill until nicely browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Pour port wine into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook until the wine is reduced by 1/2. Remove from the heat and cool. Pour the cooled wine into a liquidiser or food processor and add the shallots, garlic, mustard and vinegar. Blend until smooth.
  3. Divide the salad greens evenly between four serving plates. Arrange some of the grilled 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.

Editor's Note:

To toast walnuts, place them in a dry frying pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and fragrant, about 8 minutes.

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.-01 Jan 2005


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.-12 Jan 2005
