Fig, Pear and Gorgonzola salad.

currently I can’t get worked up about anything political. I am too full of goodwill and fresh out of misanthropy.

I am veering into a spot of food blogging. The following is a recipe for a colorful holiday time salad:

Fig, Pear and Gorgonzola Salad:


2 or 3 handfuls of greens. I used spinach and beet from the following salad kit from Safeway.

10 figs, chopped

1/4 of a cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled. Gorgonzola is a crumbly blue cows cheese with a mild creamy flavour.

Seeds from 2 pomegranates. I used the packaged variety:

Chopped figs, pomegranate seeds and crumbled gorgonzola
2 pears, Bosc or similar variety. Peel, chop in half, in half again and then into bite sze pieces.

 Combine the above ingredients. Use more or less according to taste.
Dress with Balsamic vinegar.

Serve in a large white salad bowl or on individual salad plates:

Embrace your inner housewife and enjoy the fresh produce.
