¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 ½ Tbs. Extra virgin olive oil
8 cups Romaine lettuce, clean and torn
2 red pears coarsely chopped
2 tsp. orange juice
½ English cucumbers coarsely chopped
¼ cup finely diced red onion

Combine the first 5 ingredients (vinegar through olive oil) in a small bowl and whisk vigorously. Place lettuce out on a platter and set aside. Chop pears and coat with orange juice to prevent browning (you can use lemon or lime juice or a mixture of fruit fresh and water also). Toss pears, cucumbers, and red onion with the lettuce mixture. Dress salad right before serving.

Yield: 6 servings.
