From The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy cookbook: "Ever since goat cheese became a common cooking ingredient, it seems to show up everywhere. Here, we mix it with freshly toasted walnuts, crisp fruity pear, and fresh leafy greens; the slightly smoky taste of the walnuts in this simple salad is a nice contrast to the creamy and delicious goat cheese."
Heat oven or toaster oven to 275 degrees F. Spread walnuts on a baking tray and bake until fragrant and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Roughly chop nuts.
Place oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a jar with a lid. Close tightly and shake vigorously to combine.
Place lettuce and pear slices in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add dressing, and toss. Divide among plates, sprinkle cheese and nuts on top, and serve.
