Pear and Greens Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

I made the most awesome-ness (don’t worry, totally a word) salad this week.

The recipe was from bettycrocker.com and can be found here.

I thought the combo of fresh fruit (pears), with pecans and a maple salad dressing sounded interesting. Scott loves anything with syrup, so I figured he would be all over it! I wasn’t sure how the maple syrup would be as the main ingredient of the salad dressing, but it turned out really delicious.

Sweet, but not too much, and a nice compliment to the pecans (I used walnuts) and pears. I also added carrots, grapes, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese to give the salad more bulk.

If you are looking for a new salad combo – give it a try!
