Ingredients:
1 10 oz bag of mixed spring greens
1 pear, sliced, core removed
1/2 cup of candied walnuts (recipe here for the easiest two ingredient candied walnuts EVER)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Amazing salad dressing:
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil

Directions:
Place all salad dressing ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend for one minute.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Assemble your salad.  Greens first, then pears, then walnuts, then cheese.

Individually dress each salad with dressing.  A little goes a long way.  Enjoy!

  1. Reblogged this on Davette Brown and commented:
    I’m not a big salad fan (remember I’m the picky eater in the family), but this is composed of things I like so they should be good together. Plus, feta makes most things better 🙂

  2. Thank you. This is an awesome salad. The only changes I made were I used canned pears and pecans (candied on stove – so easy). Loved the salad dressing and use it on so many other salads.
