I wanted to make a healthy and delicious salad for my husband to take to his holiday work party so we came up with this yummy pear salad. I’m all about something fast and delicious and this was just that. He said he loved it and so did everyone else. It got all eaten up so that’s a good sign! If you are looking for a healthy side dish to make for a holiday party this his would be a great easy salad to make.
1 Medium Bartlett Pear (Cut into long slithers)
1 Large Handful of Sweetened Cranberries
1 Large Handful Raw Walnuts (Broken up a little if bought whole)
Spinach (Just get a large carton from the grocer or as much as you need. I just filled the bowl)
Lemon Shallot Vinaigrette Dressing (I got mine at Wholefoods from the refrigerated section, but a regular vinaigrette would taste good as well.)
Directions: Toss all ingredients with dressing and serve immediately.
Yields: About 12 (This was for a work party of 25 but was a good enough amount as a side dish)
