Roasted Pear and Arugula Salad

INGREDIENTS
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Slice off the base of each pear so it will stand upright. Use an apple corer to remove cores, working from the base up. Peel if desired, but leave stems on. Place the pears on a baking sheet and brush with agave syrup. Roast until browned and tender, 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the size and ripeness of the pears.
  3. Whisk pomegranate juice, vinegar, oil, brown sugar, orange zest, shallot, garlic, salt, pepper, chipotle and cloves in a large bowl.
  4. Toss arugula and salad blend with the dressing in a large bowl and divide among 6 chilled plates. Set a pear on each plate and scatter some pomegranate seeds on the greens.
