    Mixed Greens with Gorgonzola, Walnuts and Red Pear

    8 handfuls of mixed greens
    1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
    4 to 5 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese at room temperature
    1 red pear, slivered
    1 cup toasted walnuts (approximately 1/8 cup per person)
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    6 to 7 Tablespoons virgin or extra virgin olive oil
    2 to 3 Tablespoons raspberry vinegar (use raspberry vinegar with a fairly
    intense raspberry flavor)
    Fresh raspberries for garnish (if available)
    To toast walnuts, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toast walnuts by placing them
    on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 5 to 8 minutes until
    fragrant. Stir nuts a few times during baking and watch to make sure they do
    not burn.

    Select a variety greens with different tastes, textures, and colors (use
    mostly lettuces, but include chicory, and other greens such as arugula,
    lamb's lettuce, or wild greens depending on the season). Wash and then dry in
    salad spinner. Tear greens into bite-size pieces and place in salad bowl,
    then add sliced red onion. Grind pepper over salad and toss. Toss salad with
    oil and follow with vinegar, toss again. Place equal amount of salad on salad
    plates. Top each salad with slivered pear, Gorgonzola, warm walnuts, and a
    few fresh raspberries.

    Serves: 6.

    My sister in law is the queen of salads - she always makes funky ones to bring to family parties. This sounds just like one of her creations. I will have to give this recipe to her.

    Pumba, no need to apologize! I love all these recipes! Thanks for submitting them. I have a couple questions though.... First do most people who post recipes here get them from a specific Disney cookbook or directly from the Chefs at the restaurants? Also, in response to Beths reply, Do you have the recipes for those 2 yummy looking deserts at the bottom of your reply? If so, are they posted on this board? They are definately 2 I'd like to add to my collection!! Thanks, Patty
