Roasted Pear Salad With Goat Cheese

This salad tastes like fall in a bowl! I paired sweet roasted pears with creamy goat cheese and spicy-and-sweet pecans. For the dressing, I used my favorite vinaigrette. (Cooked, crumbled bacon would be a great addition, and blue cheese would be a good substitution for the goat cheese.) Yummy!

Roasted Pear Salad With Goat Cheese
3 pears, cored and cut into thin slices
1 head green leaf lettuce, chopped
4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
Sweet-and-Spicy Pecans
Balsamic Vinaigrette

1. Bake pears on a aluminum foil-lined baking sheet at 400° for 10 minutes or until slightly softened and warm.
2. Toss together pears, lettuce, and next 2 ingredients. Drizzle with vinaigrette, tossing to coat. Serve immediately.
