Champagne-Dijon Dressing

This is so good on a bed of mixed spring greens!

2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup shallots, minced
1/2 cup pear nectar
2 tbsp champagne vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In a skillet heat the oil. Add the shallot and cook stirring about 1 minute. Add the nectar, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper and cook 30 seconds. Transfer to a container and allow to cool before you pour over the salad.

When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
