Bibb Lettuce Salad with Gorgonzola and Fresh Pear Dressing

Bibb Lettuce Salad with Gorgonzola and Fresh Pear Dressing: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 25 min.
Cook Time: 5 min.
Total: 30 min.
Aromatic Bartlett pears are pureed into a sweet-tart dressing and crumbled Gorgonzola adds the perfect complement.

Ingredients

  • 3 large ripe Bartlett pears, divided use
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp fresh tarragon or scant 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1-2 Tbs cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 2-3 heads Bibb lettuce, rinsed and dried
  • 4 oz (1 cup) crumbed Gorgonzola or blue cheese

Directions

  • Peel, core, and chop one pear. Place pear, 1/3 cup water, sugar, and tarragon in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until pear pieces are soft, about 5 minutes depending on ripeness of pear. Do not let all the water evaporate. There should be about 7/8 cup pear and liquid. Cool.
  • Pour pear and liquid into a blender and blend until smooth. Add part of the vinegar and lemon juice to taste. Taste and adjust sugar and acid to make a sweet-tart dressing, adding a little water if needed to thin. Refrigerate until cold.
  • Core and thinly slice remaining 2 pears. For each serving arrange 3-4 lettuce leaves on a salad plate. Top with 1/3 of a sliced pear, 2-3 tablespoons Gorgonzola and drizzle with 2 tablespoons dressing. Serve immediately.
