Simple, light and yummy!!!

Mixed Greens with Roasted Pears, Pecans and Chèvre

Roasting the pears makes them extra sweet.

3 ripe but firm Bosc pears
2 tsp olive oil
8 cups of mixed salad greens
1/2 cup toasted pecans halves (I used whole)


2 tbsp apple juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp honey
Pinch each salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 425
2. Quarter and core pears. Cut each quarter in half.
Toss pears with oil and place on baking sheet;
bake 15-20 until pears are tender and turning golden brown.
Set aside and cool.
3. Wash and dry greens
4. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together apple juice, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. Whisk in oil.
5. Toss salad greens with dressing. Divide among plates. Arrange pears slices over the top of green. Sprinkle with pecans and chèvre.
Makes 6 servings.

* I used PC raspberry vinaigrette and
I also added some dried cranberries

This recipe is from the g.i. diet cookbook
