Arugula & Pear Salad

From EatingWell:  Fall 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Besides giving this salad a nutty crunch, walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidants. For an added flavor dimension, crumble some Gorgonzola cheese over each salad.
