As much as I like a good Waldorf Salad, it’s time for something new. Something fresh, something pretty. I had a novel idea and I shall name it Kaydorf Salad. Or Pear, Walnut & Blue Cheese Salad, whatever rocks your boat, but you gottta admit that doesn’t sound half as good!
Either way, it turned out to be a wonderful green salad with flavors that really compliment each other. It combines sweetness of pears with savory blue cheese.

Perhaps you remember my roasted tomatoes and magor sauce? I used magor there: mascarpone with gorgonzola. This is camembert combined with blue cheese. It’s awesome stuff. But anything goes: Gorgonzola, Roquefort, whatever you like. Just crumble the cheese between your fingers and add it to the salad.

It’s the mommy in me! I sneak vegetables & fruit into everything these days. It just makes…
