The Perfect Summer Salad Includes Pears
Summer is definitely starting out with a bang at our house. Soccer camps and dance camps mixed with friends, visits to the pool and family coming to visit. It's officially summer time and I am loving it!
Summer is my favorite season. I love being able to head outside anytime I want and not get blasted by freezing cold air and wind. I love that you can take a bike ride, go for a run or head out for a walk or swim. There are so many things to choose from
This grilled salad has the perfect combinations in it. A sweet pear honey vinaigrette with hazelnuts, dried cranberries, grilled pears and a helping of feta cheese. It is delicious! To make it a meal, you can add some cut up chicken breasts or grilled tofu brushed with some of the vinaigrette.
The key ingredient in this recipe is the pears. They should be ripe and juicy, and are best when they are in season. Pears are a great source of fiber and are also low in calories, making them an ideal ingredient for a healthy salad. The mixed greens in this recipe provide a good source of vitamins and minerals, and the feta cheese adds a creamy and tangy flavor that complements the sweetness of the pears. The hazelnuts are also a great addition, providing a crunchy texture and a source of healthy fats.
This salad can be served as a side dish or as a main course. If you want to make it a main course, you can add some protein to it. Grilled chicken or shrimp would be a great addition, or you could even add some cooked quinoa or farro for a more filling meal.
