Laura McIntosh's recipe of the week: Pear Sylvetta salad

This week, "Bringing It Home" TV show host Laura McIntosh shows us how to make Chef Sean O'Toole's Sylvetta Salad:

Ingredients
1/4 Sylvetta (Wild Arugula)
3 Bartlett Pears
1/4 Pint Reyes Blue Cheese
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1 Tbs Black Peppercorns
1 Lemon
Olive Oil
Salt
Pepper
4 Slices of Rustic Bread

Cooking Instructions
Cut the lemon in half; squeeze half in 1 quart of water. Peel the pears, slice ½ thick, and cut half of those into ½ inch batons and reserve in the lemon water. In a small sauce pot combine sherry vinegar and maple syrup and reduce until glaze like consistency, crack the black peppercorns and add. In a sauté pan, caramelize the pear slices.

Place caramelized pears on a plate, dress the sylvetta and pear batons with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper; arrange on the plate. Follow with crumbled blue cheese and drizzle with sherry maple vinaigrette. Serve with grilled bread.
