Arugula Pear Salad with Fresh Bleu Cheese
There’s something so refreshing about this pear, bleu cheese and arugula salad. It has the perfect mix of every flavor and texture: sweetness from the pears, slight bitterness from the arugula, creaminess from the bleu cheese and crunch from the toasted walnuts.
