Summer Salad with Asiago, Pears, and Cashews

by Laura

I always love a good salad!  I recently tried this Summer Salad with Asiago, Pears, and Cashews recipe out when I went to my in-laws for dinner.  I found it in my It’s Summer issue from Betty Crocker.  It is a simple salad that is also delicious. 

I love the tart balsamic dressing along with the sweet pears, salty cashews and then the nice bite you get from the asiago cheese.  I am not a big fan of blue cheese so asiago is always a nice choice for me.  It has that strong bite to the flavor but isn’t over powering.  Plus cheese goes so well with pears.  This Summer Salad with Asiago, Pears, and Cashews is another winner.

This salad was a hit at my memorial day barbeque! I used mostly arugula instead of mixed greens which provided a nice spicy contrast to the sweet pears and dressing. Also, I roasted the cashews in the toaster for 5 minutes at 350 degrees. Thanks for the recipe! Will be sure to make again.
