This salad incorporates the classic combination of blue cheese, pears, and walnuts. The peppery arugula stands up nicely to the blue cheese, and the lemon juice and pear add brightness. This is a great side salad with steak.
I take help from the supermarket by purchasing glazed walnuts, but you could, of course, make your own. If you are not a fan of blue cheese, goat cheese pairs nicely as well.
