Green Salad with Pears, Walnuts & Feta

This salad seems just right for Fall-Winter meals that can be heavy.  Pears are right for the season and provide a light touch.

1 medium-sized ripe pear
(D'Anjou, Comice or Bartlett - Bosc is too dry)
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Soft lettuce or Romaine, clean and well-dried
1-2 tbsp olive or walnut oil
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toast
(under broiler, carefully watched)
1-2 teas. red wine vinegar
freshly ground black pepper

Cut pears into thin slices, place in bowl and cover with lemon juice. Set aside.
Pat lettuce with paper towels to be sure it is really dry. Tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces, drizzle with oil and toss.
Gently mix walnuts and feta. Sprinkle with vinegar and grate some black pepper. Toss with lettuce to incorporate.
Lift the pear pieces out of the lemon juice carefully and arrange on top of salad. Serve.

Serves 2.
