I love thIs salad. I decided to combine the apples and pears together to complete this salad. I also topped it off with my cider vinaigrette dressing. Enjoy!
Place all ingredients for dressing into a food processor. Process until smooth. Pour in to a bottle, or bowl and refrigerator.
Place walnuts and or pecans in a frypan set heat to high. Add a teaspoon of olive oil. Stir constantly until you smell the aroma of the nuts. Usually that's an indication that they are done and they are just lightly browned. Should take about three minutes or so. Remove from heat onto a plate. Set aside to cool.
Heat oven to 425 degree's. Peel apples and pears. Core and remove seeds. Cut each piece of fruit into eight pieces. Then cut each piece in half width wise. You can leave them in wedges or you can cut them in half like I did. Toss fruit in olive oil. Place in a small baking dish Tightly next each other. Salt-and-pepper them. Toss while baking after 10 minutes. Bake Until sides are starting to caramelize and fruit is still a bit crisp. Do not cook until mushy. Remove from pan.
Rinse and spin your baby greens. Place equal portions on four plates or bowls. Portion out the celery fruit, nuts and Gorgonzola cheese evenly On top of greens. Dress with the cider vinaigrette.
