Roasted Pear Salad

1 bosc pear
1 tablespoon soy margarine, melted
3 big handfuls fresh mesclun salad
2 tablespoons walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground dry mustard
pinch salt
ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 500F. Melt margarine on stovetop. Stem the pear and cut it lengthwise into about six wedges, if you are using a small pear. Brush all sides of the pear with the melted margarine and put them on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes on each side, then take them out of the oven. Mix the garlic, vinegar, mustard and salt together in a bowl. While whisking the mixture, add the olive oil in a steady stream and mix until incorporated. Toss the salad with the dressing and pile it into a high mound on a plate. Lay the warm pear wedges on the lettuce and sprinkle the walnuts on top. Finish off with some freshly ground pepper. Serves 2 or 3.
