Pear Kimchi and Blue Cheese Salad

Pear Kimchi and Blue Cheese Salad

Now that I had my pear kimchi it was time to move on to the pear kimchi and blue cheese salad inspired by the Swish by Han. Sweet pear and tangy blue cheese is an amazing flavour combination that I never tire of and it works particularly well in the form of a pear and blue cheese salad so I was really enthusiastic about the idea of a pear kimchi and blue cheese salad! I kept the salad pretty simple, focusing on the pear kimchi and blue cheese that I added to some arugula tossed in an Asian style vinaigrette with a few garnishes. I have to say that the sweet and spicy pear kimchi and creamy and tangy blue cheese works really together in this salad and I was quickly going back for seconds!

All your meals look so gourmet and tasty! I keep bookmarking them to try and cook later, but realizing I really need my own kitchen (not borrowed boyfriend's kitchen or parents') to do them. But nicely done again!
