I really wanted a salad today! But to be honest, I often get turned off by the idea. Salads always sound so boring to me. Ugh..."salad". But that's soooooo not the case! I don't take advantage of the endless possibilities! So today, I decided to enjoy something more than my usual lettuce, tomato & cucumber routine. I had pears in my fridge & they were waitin' for some lovin'. So I used that as my inspiration for today's super simple lunch! Enjoy! *
Pear & Walnut Salad *
Add pears, walnuts, onions, craisins & cheese to the mixed spring greens. *
In a separate bowl, whisk together EVOO, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt & pepper. *NOTE: My dressing came out way too tart and tangy for my taste. I fixed it by mixing in just a bit of yellow mustard and agave. So good! If you have Dijion mustard, use that instead. 😉
Pour onto salad.
