Serve with my Garlic Cheesy Toast (with Garlic Confit)
Make the Zesty Garlic Confit Vinaigrette.
Preheat broiler. Place heat source 4 inches from the oven rack.
Cut pear into quarters and remove core. Cut each quarter into three lengthwise slices, making 12.
Foil line a baking sheet and add the pears. Place honey and garlic oil in a small bowl, microwave a few seconds to liquify.
Brush all over the pears and broil to soften, about 3 -5 minutes. Will be caramelized and golden around the edges. Cool.
Tear lettuce leaves onto 4 individual plates or into a serving bowl.
Add arugula leaves, julienned carrot, pomegranate seeds, pecans and microgreens.
Top each plate with 3 pieces of caramelized pear (or add to bowl.)
Drizzle with Zesty Garlic Confit Vinaigrette and serve immediately.
You can always elevate the textures and flavors by adding you favorite cheese (crumbled goat or feta) on top.
