Summer is Salad Time…

Butter Lettuce Salad with Fresh Pears and Blue Cheese Crumbles
The Gourmet Farm Girl


Any lettuce will work for this recipe, I use Butter Lettuce for its soft tender sweetness.

Cut fresh cucumbers into bit size pieces, slice red onions, and top with blue cheese crumbles and a fresh Anjou pear cut into slices. Arrange on plates or a large salad bowl and top with some roasted pine nuts.

I toast approximately 1 tablespoon per individual salad
Toast pine nuts on an oven stone or a heavy cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Toast just till they start to turn brown you do not want to burn them
