A springtime treat, mâche (pronounced mosh; also called lamb's lettuce) grows in sweet little florets and has a buttery taste. Rich in vitamins and minerals, mâche can replace regular lettuce in salads. If you can't find mâche, use baby spinach instead.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together raspberry vinegar, honey, and olive oil. Season with sea salt, if desired.
- Heat a small skillet over medium-high flame and coat lightly with cooking spray. Add pecans and drizzle with maple syrup. Stir pecans constantly until lightly coated with syrup and beginning to roast, about 5 minutes (watch carefully to avoid burning). Spread pecans to cool on a plate.
- Place mâche in a large bowl. Add candied pecans, sliced pear, and gorgonzola; toss. Drizzle with about half of the raspberry dressing and toss until well coated. Divide salad among four plates, top with edible flowers (if using), and serve.
