Pear Salad with Brie


This simple recipe is a  basic lesson in salad making 101: First you need lettuce (any kind will do), which here is washed, drained, shredded, and then arranged on a platter. Then you'll want to add interesting toppings, such as sliced fresh pears (tossed with fresh lemon juice to prevent browning) and diced Brie (or other creamy cheese with a pungent taste). It's dressed with a red wine vinaigrette and finished with crushed almonds.

3 pears
