Sometimes I just can't get my fill of this combination salad: Bartlett pears- I can't stress the Bartlett part enough. Baby spinach or begian endive. Peppered bacon, crumbled. Red onion slivers. Toasted pinenuts or pecans. Maytag blue cheese and/or a crumbly aged cheddar. Balsamic vinagrette or a thin, creamy garlic dressing, if you make one. Thinly sliced button mushrooms. I can say no more. Why is it so good? I just don't know. Have it with some thick toasted slices of good country bread, rubbed with a little garlic. Go to town.
