Pear, Basil and Pecorino Toscano Salad

Pear, Basil and Pecorino Toscano Salad via Olives and Oranges as seen on linenandlavender.net:  http://www.linenandlavender.net/2009/12/pear-basil-and-pecorino-toscano-salad.html


From the book "Olives and Oranges" page 82...(making use of those beautiful pears we just received for Christmas!):


12 oz Pecorino Toscano cheese
4 ripe pears, cored and cut into eighths
1 cup packed fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Vin Santo vinegar or other high-quality mild white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon fleur de sel or other medium-coarse sea salt or more to-taste
Coarse ground black pepper


Using the tip of a sharp paring knife, break cheese into irregular chunks about 1/2 inch in size.


Place cheese, pear slices, basil leaves, oil, vinegar and salt in a large bowl and toss to combine.  Season with pepper and more salt if needed.  Serve at once.  (4 servings)

So easy and so delicious!
