Spring salad with blue cheese and honey mustard dressing

This salad is perfect for spring or any time of the year ! Can be accompanied by a nice roast beef or filet mignon.


 Half  pack of Arugula and half pack baby spinach
 1 handful of pecans nuts
 1- 2 Bosc pears sliced
 Few pieces of blue cheese according to taste (omit completely if blue cheese is not to your liking )
 1 tbs honey to toast the walnuts

1/4 cup of olive oil
Juice from half a lemon
1tbs of honey
1 tsp dijon mustard
Salt to taste


Wash and drain greens
Toast pecans with a tbs of honey in a pan on low heat - set aside to cool
Whisk all ingredients for dressing and keep in the fridge until ready to serve
Arrange mixed greens on a plate
Add pecans , sliced pears and blue cheese
Drizzle with dressing
Enjoy !

Replace blue cheese with goat cheese 
Bosc pear (brown skin pear ) is best for this salad as it's dry and crisp
Increase the dressing amount and keep in a tight lid container in the fridge for later use
