Pear Vinaigrette

Pear Vinaigrette

Makes about 1½ cups

This dressing is light and savory, with a nicely balanced touch of sweetness that pairs perfectly with spicy greens like arugula, funky cheeses like goat or blue, and toasted walnuts or pecans.

  • 1 ripe pear, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup olive oil

In a blender, combine the pear, white wine, garlic, Dijon mustard, white balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and sea salt until well combined. With the blender running, drizzle in the olive oil in a thin, steady stream to emulsify. Blend a few seconds longer until the salad dressing is thick and creamy.
