It is HOT! In the dead of winter I sigh wishing for the ability to feel grass in between my toes, but I’ll admit when it is super hot and there’s no pool open, I might also become a little bit testy. The city pool was closed the entire weekend and so was the school pool where I swim laps so I sought out ways to add some serious chill into my life.
This recipe is my version of a sad which is served at a storied detail restaurant and the original recipe has avouches, but mine wasn’t ripe, so I omitted it. The dressing, which I used with too liberal of a hand; my us of dressing on occasion might be the only way I think I have ever been too liberal. I think personally I am just the correct amount of liberal, but I digress. I am focussing on the salad.
The balsamic dressing and pungent cheese was the perfect compliment to the pears, and I found myself wishing I had more cooked vegetables because they gave the salad a crunchy substance enabling me to truly call this salad a real meal. I have a tremendous amount of dressing left because while I portioned the other ingredients to fit my individual needs, I made the amount of dressing which was supposed to feed 5-6 people. Looks like I have some chilled meals in my future,
