Spinach and Pear Salad

    This is a favorite of mine that I have made many times. I love that it is also a nutritional bargain with so many great vitamins and minerals with very few calories. I have added additional pears, dried cranberries and toasted almonds or glazed walnuts. I can see why using an apple and mixed greens would leave you feeling it lacked something!

    I served this salad alongside CL's Apple, Goat Cheese, and Pecan Pizza. I used half baby spinach and half mixed greens. I also added a sliced Fuji apple since I had it on hand. If I hadn't served this alongside the pizza, I definitely would have thought it lacked something. I would definitely add goat cheese or walnuts or pecans if I served it without the pizza. I also added two pre-cooked chicken breasts to the salad.

    I've made this salad according to the directions a number of times for different events and everyone has always loved it. Easy and delicious, as written.
