My sister in law brought this salad over for dinner and I couldn't stop eating it.'
I now call it the "Molly Salad" and make it all the time.
There is just something about this salad...maybe the candied walnuts, the delicious pears, or the homemade balsamic dressing, but everything goes together perfectly.
You will need:
Spring mix & spinach
Candied walnuts (directions below)
2 Bosc pears
3/4 cup evoo
¼ cup balsamic
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp brown sugar
Sea Salt, pepper
To candy the walnuts, 2 Tbsp butter and 1 TBSP brown sugar melted in pan.
Then add walnuts and coat. Lay on wax paper to dry.
After the walnuts are candied, add spring mix and spinach to a bowl.
Slice up 2 bosc pears and toss in a handful of cranberries.
Add some freshly grated parmesan cheese and your salad is ready to eat!
To make the dressing combine all ingredients and whisk.
Pour over salad and toss well.
