  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss the mixed spring lettuce with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Fan the sliced pears over the bottom of each serving plate. Mound the greens in the center of the pears.

  4. Crumble the blue cheese over the greens. Garnish with black pepper and parsley.
