  • 2 red pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens (like arugula, spinach, and romaine)

  • For the vinaigrette:
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  4. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad and toss gently to combine.
