(Aylin’s Mom)



5 ounce bag organic arugula (Linked Here)
4 ounce goat cheese (Linked Here)
1 firm Bosc or Bartlett pear (Linked Here)
1 lemon zest and juice (Linked Here)
2 scallions sliced (Linked Here)
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (Linked Here)
3 Tbsp balsamic glaze (Linked Here)
2-3 Tbsp Pine nuts toasted (Linked Here)
Salt & Pepper to taste



    • place arugula in a serving platter add scallions, lemon zest, S&P 
    • drizzle olive oil and juice of half lemon and gently toss
    • Cut pear lengthwise in half, core the seeds out and slice very thin and place them over arugula mixture 
    • Drizzle balsamic glaze,  crumble goat cheese over 
    • Add a little more lemon zest and sprinkle pine nuts and serve. 

***If you’re making it ahead hold the S&P until ready to serve and refrigerate. If you can’t find balsamic glaze in a store near you you can make it at home very easily. Buy a good quality balsamic vinegar that price range is best for you.  2  cups balsamic vinegar , 1/2  cup brown sugar or honey Place balsamic vinegar and honey in a small non-reactive pan over a med heat stir until starts to bubble turn the heat down and simmer until it reduced by half , about 20 minutes. After it cooled pour into a bottle and refrigerate. Will keep months.
