One of my favorite salads

Salads are one of the most versatile menu options.  You could eat salad every day and never get bored just by changing the ingredients.  Salad is also a way to help feed a crowd.  I have been coordinating food for a local consignment sale’s volunteers this week and they devoured this salad at lunch.  It’s one of my favorites!  Adjust the proportions to your liking!  I think you could add grilled chicken to the salad to make an entree salad.

Pear and Friends Green Salad
Green Leaf Lettuce
Baby Spinach
Sliced pears (any kind of ripe pear will do)
Bacon pieces
Dried Cranberries  (I use Craisins)
Red onion, thinly sliced
Feta or Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
Candied walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)

I like to serve with Mango Vinaigrette or Olde Cape Cod brand Sesame Wasabi dressing
