New Year. New Resolutions. New Salad Recipes!

This is very similar to other salads I’ve posted. My formula for the perfect salad = light vinaigrette + greens + fruit + nuts/seeds (add in some cheese if you want).  Works every time! Here is a recipe for a salad with pear, blue cheese, dried cranberries & pumpkin seeds.
