Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Hearth & Soul Hop
This salad was a hit as a side dish with last nights dinner.  Here is the recipe.  I am currently eating many salads from my garden.  I planted lettuce this year and it is taking over part of my garden.  This has saved me much money on lettuce this year. 

I love my garden what are you eating from yours? (leave me a comment)

  1. What a wonderful, seasonal salad. I love the pear/raspberry combination. The vinaigrette sounds delicious too. Thank you for sharing this post with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.
