Updated August 16, 2010

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 pears, unpeeled, each cut into 8 lengthwise wedges
  • 2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup purchased honey-mustard salad dressing

Steps

  • 1
    Arrange spinach leaves on 8 individual serving plates or on large platter. Top each with pear wedges, cheese, onion and walnuts.
  • 2
    Drizzle each salad with 2 tablespoons salad dressing. Serve immediately.

  • For salads, choose pears that are firm and free from blemishes. Red-skinned pears look especially nice in this recipe.
  • Regular spinach, coarsely torn into bite-sized pieces, can be used in place of the baby spinach.
  • All the ingredients for this salad, except the pears, can be prepared in advance. Place each ingredient in a separate container, cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Cut the pears and assemble the salads when you're ready to serve them.
