About

This panini is a take on a classic Pear and Gorgonzola salad, which is traditionally topped with walnuts.
The tangy, savory flavor of the Gorgonzola pairs fantastically with the sweet juiciness of the pear. The crunch of the walnut bread adds depth of flavor and substance to the panini. The honey adds a little sticky warmth to it all making it an unbeatable combination.
Although not something I have ever eaten before, it was definitely something very different and fancy!
