Step by Step Method

Step 1

Start by marinating the chicken breast with the olive oil and thyme. Set aside. Palce a grilling pan on the stovetop and start to warm it up.

Step 2

Cut the pears in halve, then slice each half into slices of 1/8 and 1/4 inch thickness. Brush them with olive oil and lemon, (which will help them not srick). Grill the pears for 1 minute on each side until they show the grilling marks. Set them aside. Alternatively just saute them for a minute per side so it gets a little golden

Step 3

Grill the chicken, until well cooked. Oe saute in pan

Step 4

Assemble the salad starting by the spinach, the add the cheese, the pears, the chicken cut in slices, top with the hazelnuts and drizzle over the dressing and only at the end the balsamic glaze.

This is a wonderful salad with a great blend of flavors and contrasting textures. The pears I chose were over-ripe and didn't hold up well to the heat, so I grilled only half of the pear slices. The gorgonzola adds a nice tang , and the hazelnuts add a nice crunch that contrasts well with the softer ingredients. We enjoyed this salad very much. Thanks, Marramamba.
