This Easter, save money and wow your guests by making brunch at home. This Butter Lettuce Salad with Pears and Gorgonzola is the perfect recipe to get your brunch-planning started. The dressing recipe is a long-time favorite in my family. It was actually the first recipe my mom gave me when I went off to college. I made this salad for my friend’s baby shower a couple weeks ago and it was a hit!
Butter-Lettuce Salad with Pears
2 ½ bags of pre-cut butter lettuce
2 pears peeled and cut into cubes
½ cup Gorgonzola cheese
½ cup rosemary or candied pecans
1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in to halves
2 small or about ¾ large cucumber cut in half and then into slices
1/3 cup raspberry or strawberry jam
¼ olive oil
4 tsp rice vinegar
4 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp white wine
1 tsp mustard
Mix all salad dressing ingredients together with a whisker. Combine all salad ingredients in a serving bowl, toss with dressing, and enjoy!
