Winter Salad with Roquefort and Pears
In the bottom of a large salad bowl, stir the red wine vinegar, mustard and salt and pepper together. Gradually whisk in the walnut oil. Add the cheese and stir to combine.
Add the lettuce, pears, red onion, and bell pepper to the bowl. Just before serving, toss gently to coat with the dressing. Sprinkle with the nuts and serve.
