Strawberry, Caramelized Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

A few years ago I would have never even thought of eating something like this. Fruit is sweet and has no business inside a savory dish. I was so wrong.

Strawberry, Caramelized Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

Peel and core a half of one Williams pear. Slice it relatively thin and coat in 1 Tbsp sugar and 1 tsp dark Muscovado sugar. Caramelise on 1,5 Tbsp olive oil on low heat, until pears get soft. Take a handful of arugula leaves and a couple of lemon balm leaves and put on a serving plate. Toss over 2 sliced strawberries, caramelized pear slices and pieces of soft blue cheese of your choice (I used Bergader Bavaria blu). Season with ground black pepper and balsamic vinegar.
