Recipe: Pear and Pecan Salad with Mixed Greens

This is a lovely and delicious salad that goes well with holiday entrees.  It’s from my Kraft Simply Celebrating holiday recipe book. It is one of my favorites.  You will need

  • 1 package mixed salad greens (or 6 cups of torn leaf and romaine lettuce; use some red leaf lettuce for color)
  • 2 medium pears, sliced.
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, halved.

Toss these ingredients.  Just before serving drizzle the salad with Ranch dressing (fat-free is fine) and sprinkle with

  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Toasted pecans

I think this works best as a plated salad, or on a large platter, rather than served from a large salad bowl.
