Blue Cheese and Pear Salad

recipe courtesy of

This blue cheese dressing was seriously awesome.  I added more black pepper than it called for and a pinch of salt.  It’s quick, easy, and far better than anything out of a bottle.  Note: I used a mix of romaine, radicchio, and frisée for the salad.


  • 1/2 cup(s) buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup(s) blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  •  1 bunch(es) arugula, baby variety
  •  1 head(s) romaine lettuce, roughly torn
  •  3 medium pear(s), cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup(s) chopped walnuts, toasted
  1. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, blue cheese, garlic and pepper; set aside.
  2. Combine arugula, romaine and pears in a large serving bowl; drizzle with dressing and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle with walnuts and serve.
