Directions:

STEP 1

The simplicity of this salad allows the sweetness of the pears and the earthy crunchiness of the Parmigiano Reggiano to shine. The crisp greens along with the unique taste of balsamic vinegar make this salad a winner every time.Mix the balsamic vinegar, honey and olive oil in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, and shake vigorously to blend the ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

STEP 2

Wash and dry the lettuce and divide it among four plates.

STEP 3

Peel, quarter and core the pears. (If you do this in advance, drizzle them with a little lemon juice to keep them from discoloring.) Slice one half pear per person and arrange over the salad greens.

STEP 4

Drizzle each plate with the balsamic honey vinaigrette. With a vegetable peeler, make shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano and scatter over the salad before serving.
