Ingredients

½ tablespoon butter, unsalted
½ tablespoon olive oil
2 each pears
ripe but firm, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ cup walnuts
1 tablespoon maple syrup
4 cups romaine lettuce
about half head, torn into bite-size pieces
*
¼ cup goat (chevre) cheese
crumbled
*
2 tablespoons cranberries, dried
optional
*
4 slices prosciutto
cut into thin slices
*
Dressing:
2 tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
or wine vinegar
½ teaspoon dijon mustard
1 clove garlic
small clove, minced
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
*

Directions

Heat the butter and olive oil in a medium size nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot.

Stir in the pear slices and brown sugar until evenly combined, stirring occasionally, and cook until the pears are softened, deeply browned and caramelized, about 8 minutes.

Season with salt and black pepper. Remove from the heat and set side.

Meanwhile toast the walnuts at 350℉ (180℃) degrees oven or a hot pan until fragrant and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the walnuts to a bowl, then drizzle the maple syrup over, and toss to combine. Set aside.

Meanwhile whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a bowl until well mixed. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Add half dressing into the caramelized pears, and gently toss to combined.

Add the lettuce into a medium mixing bowl, and drizzle the other half dressing over and toss until evenly coated.

You might need to season with more salt, black pepper and vinegar to your own taste at each of these two steps.

Divide the dressed lettuce between two serving plates.

Top with equal amount of caramelized pears, goat cheese, maple walnuts, dried cranberries if desired, and prosciutto slices.

Serve.
