How to Make It

In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Whisking constantly, slowly add the oil; set aside.

Arrange the arugula on individual plates and top with the pear and cheese. Drizzle with the vinaigrette.

Tip: For a warm salad, heat the vinaigrette in a small saucepan over medium heat for 1 minute, and substitute spinach for the arugula.

Wow! Just happened that I had all ingredients on hand. Outstanding dressing!! I did the recipe exactly as written. The blue cheese I used was an amazing bargain from Costco. Next time I'll add toasted walnuts, pecans or almonds. The downside, I don't have any more farm fresh arugula -- if I did, I'd make more salad right now!

Simple and delicious! I used fresh arugula from the garden and topped with smoked blue cheese and toasted walnuts.

I modified this a little based on personal preference. And it was still wonderful! and easy! I used white wine vinegar since I didn't have red wine vinegar and it was great. Also, I added goat cheese instead of blue and walnuts.

Dressing is simple and is very tasting with the salad.
