Bacon, Pear and Blue Cheese Chicken Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette


Simple salads are the best meal for the warmer months, in my opinion. And even though this salad is simple, it packs so much flavor. The bacon (thick-cut is key) and blue cheese are a perfect marriage and the pear adds a special sweet touch. Serve this alfresco style with a cold glass of white wine and enjoy these precious sunny days!



1. Whisk together vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl.



2. Place butter lettuce leaves on a serving platter and top with the remaining salad toppings. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
