simple pear and arugula salad with balsamic reduction

3 Jan

what you need for one salad:

1 pear

1 large handful of arugula

1/4 cup pecans, toasted

1/3 c balsamic vinegar


It’s really easy..

first, make the balsamic reduction. reduce the balsamic vinegar in a sauce pan over low heat. until its thick and syrupy. don’t let it bubble-that means the heat is too high. it takes about 15 minutes.

slice the pear into uniform wedges and arrange on the plate in a sunburst

top with arugula, toasted pecans and drizzle with the balsamic syrup.
