  1. i like an endive with pear, some sort of nut -- maybe a spiced pecan -- and a few crumbles of blue cheese, sprinkled with walnut oil and a nice vinegar. light, but with the notes of the season built in...

    1. Try a dry dry goat cheese with this salad, some spiced pecans and a carmellized shallot vinegrette.

      1. I like this one from Epicurious:

        APPLE, DRIED CHERRY, AND WALNUT SALAD WITH MAPLE DRESSING

        http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec...

        1. Pear, avocado, and cucumber. Toss lightly with dressing and serve over chopped romaine or othr greens. Make a tarragon vinaigrette:

          1/4 cup oil
          1/8 cup tarragon vinegar (or substitute any fairly plain vinegar)
          3/4 teaspoon honey
          1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
          1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
          1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
          S and P

          1. red oak, slivered red pear, sweet and spicy pecans, crumbled bleu cheese with a balsamic vinaigrette. Perfect mix for fall, great combination of tastes and textures.
