As promised, I bring you the recipe for my Pear & Spinach Salad with a Blueberry Vinaigrette.
This may be my favorite salad. EVER. The healthy crispiness of the spinach and pears, the crunch of the walnuts, the creaminess of the cheese, and the sweetness of the fruit all blend together for a terrific texture and taste. Yum!
