White and Green Salad with Escarole, Pear, Avocado
This is a lovely union of ingredients. The escarole, fennel and celery serve as a textural and fresh base for the pear and blue cheese (in this case gorgonzola) which we all know are a natural pairing. The avocado added a rich and nutty element that was cut by the spice of the scallion and the simple dressing of lemon juice and evoo.
