Pear, Blue Cheese, and Walnut Salad

I found this glorious salad on pinterest, my new favorite website for discovering new and interesting 
recipes. And let me tell you, it was fantastic. The best part about it was the simplicity.

4 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs red wine vinegar
1 tbs plus 1 tsp maple syrup
½ tsp Dijon mustard
Blue Cheese
1 pear

                        Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the first 4 ingredients to make the maple vinaigrette. Roast the walnuts for around 8 minutes or until cooked to perfection.  Peel the pear and cut into slices. Arrange salad plates with arugula, blue cheese, walnuts, and pear slices. Drizzle with vinaigrette and enjoy!
