Roasted Pear Salad

Rated as 3.2 out of 5 Stars

"Oven-roasted pears take the ho-hum out of this green salad created by our Test Kitchen staff. They tossed together a good-for-you medley of mellow pear slices, crispy greens, nuts and dried cranberries. The creamy dressing carries yet more pear flavor sweetened with just a touch of honey."

  1. In a bowl, toss pears with 1 teaspoon oil. Place in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Turn pears over;bake 5-7 minutes longer or until golden and tender.
  2. When cool enough to handle, peel pears. Thinly slice two pear halves lengthwise and set aside. Place remaining pear halves in a food processor or blender. Add the vinegar, water, honey, salt and white pepper; cover and process until smooth. While processing, slowly add remaining oil.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the salad greens, watercress, nuts and cranberries. Arrange pear slices on top; drizzle with dressing.

This salad will not appeal to everyone but we raise hazelnuts in Oregon and roasted pear salads are very popular. This recipe needs spinach green and blue cheese. Poultry sliced thin is great to...

Excellent I must say, although I would not suggest adding the honey - it just does not need it. Mrs. Evelyn

The salad ingredients were great but no one enjoyed the dressing as it was too mushy.

not good
