Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

In a small bowl, toss the sliced pears with lemon zest, juice, thyme and parsley. 

Brush a sheet of phyllo with butter and cut it in thirds lengthwise. 

Spread a heaping teaspoon of grated comté in the corner of the end of one strip. 

Top with a few pear slices. 

Lift the corner of dough up over the filling and fold it diagonally to cover the filling and make a triangle. 

Continue folding, as you would a flag, until you reach the end of the pastry. 

Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush the top of the triangle with butter. 

Repeat until pear, comté and phyllo are used up. 

Bake until triangles are browned and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. 

Cool 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

Meanwhile, for the salad, make the vinaigrette by combining sherry vinegar, apple juice, salt, pepper and walnut pieces in a blender. 

Blend until smooth. 

Add canola oil and combine until the vinaigrette thickens. 

Taste and adjust seasoning. 

Combine the greens and red onion in a large bowl. 

Toss with the dressing and garnish with walnuts.

 Divide the salad among plates and serve with hot phyllo triangles.
