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.

In a small bowl, whisk together:
1/2 vegetable oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
pinch of cayenne pepper

Once well mixed, set aside. Can be made a few days ahead of time and stored in refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.

In a large salad bowl, combine:
1 6-8 oz package of ready to use baby spinach leaves
1 pear, peeled and cubed
1 avocado, pitted and cubed
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

Optional:
1 cup walnuts
Croutons

Pour enough dressing over salad to coat and toss to combine.

Serves 4-6 as starter salad
