With these beautiful warm days upon us, I love sitting outside to enjoy lunch.  Salads are always a favorite and this one is no stranger in my recipe line up.  I love the light flavor of butter lettuce and when you add the crunch of the pears and the savory intensity of blue cheese, you’ve got a winner.  I add a grind of black pepper, my favorite vinaigrette dressing and lunch is served.
