Fall Recipes

This is a great Spinach, Pear, Bleu Cheese Salad. I put the recipe in an earlier posting but here it is again:

2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pear, cut lengthwise into 15 slices
8 cups spinach, torn
1/4 cup red onions, thinly sliced

Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place the pear slices in a large bowl. Spoon 1 tablespoon dressing over pears; toss to coat. Add the remaining dressing, spinach, and onion; toss to coat.

*Note*I didn't have dijon mustard or red onions. So I used regular mustard and Vidalia onions. It was still great! I used Bosc Pear and a real good bleu cheese. Stan loved it.
