Pear, Avocado and Gorgonzola Salad
The pear, avocado and gorgonzola salad is a great salad! The pear and Gorgonzola cheese compliment each other so deliciously. This is a great starter salad or you could put grilled chicken or shrimp on top and make it into a meal.

1/2 vegetable oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 pear, peeled and cubed
1 avocado, pitted and cubed
