A Favorite Salad

Today, I made one of my favorite salads--so perfect for those crisp fall days. I didn't have any pears (well, I *thought* I didn't have any pears, then finished eating my salad and remembered I just bought pears yesterday. Duh. I need more sleep or coffee or something, LOL). I love the dressing--an easy, quick mix of 1 tablespoon honey, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Couldn't be easier to make.
This is an older photo of this salad, and doesn't show the nuts I usually toss on it. The candied walnuts are something I use pretty often, and so I keep a batch in my freezer. They add that little bit of yummy crunch :-)


  1. I think you prepared this at one of our get-togethers. I remember because it was especially good and I thought it was an unusual combination of ingredients.


  2. I might have. It's one of my favorites :-)
