A very easy, fancy salad! Bring it to a 4th of July BBQ this weekend and you'll impress your friends & family!
1/2 head green leaf lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 Bosc pear, cored and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 Asian pear, cored and cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar (I used red because that's what I had on hand)
1 clove crushed or chopped garlic
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 pinch salt
ground black pepper to taste
1. Toss together salad ingredients.
2. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, garlic, and mustard powder. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Stir in minced fresh herbs if desired.
3. Add 1/2 cup dressing (no more!) to salad. Toss to coat.
