Ingredients:

1 Tbs. finely chopped shallot
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
¼ cup fresh orange juice
4 tsp. fresh Meyer lemon juice (see note)
¼ tsp. kosher salt
⅛ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
4 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbs. fresh orange juice
2 firm ripe Bosc pears, cored and thinly sliced
6 cups mixed baby lettuces
1 head Boston or butter lettuce, torn (about 2 cups)
¾ cup (3 oz.) crumbled goat cheese

Directions:

To prepare dressing, combine shallots and mustard in a medium bowl stirring with a whisk. Stir in ¼ cup orange juice and next 3 ingredients (through pepper). Gradually add oil, stirring constantly with a whisk.

To prepare salad, combine 2 tablespoons orange juice dressing and the pears, tossing to coat. Combine lettuces in a large bowl. Drizzle with remaining dressing; toss gently to coat. Top with the pears and the goat cheese and serve.

Notes:

If you can't find Meyer lemons (Whole Foods often has them), use regular lemon juice and add a pinch of sugar.  Meyer lemons are in season from December to April, so will be easier to find then.
