Split the lettuce between two containers. Cut in half and core the pear, then cut each half in slices. Divide the pear pieces and pomegranate seeds among the two containers and mix gently.
Combine the vegetable oil, pomegranate juice, fresh lemon juice, mustard, honey, and pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat and mixing it frequently, until the dressing thickens little bit, about 2 minutes. Add the warm dressing over the salads and serve.
