Spinach salad with pears, candied walnuts and feta cheese with balsamic vinaigrette
A perfectly made salad, with fresh ingredients and homemade dressing can make a meal. Or, it can be the meal, if you’re looking for something light. The combination of the fresh spinach, sliced pears, crunchy candied walnuts and feta cheese, with a balsamic vinaigrette puts this salad on my all-time favorite list. I ate it 10 minutes ago and I can tell you it was superb.
Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette
Whisk together the following ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Freshly ground pepper
Toss spinach with some dressing and distribute on salad plates. Add sliced pears, candied walnuts and feta cheese. Drizzle a little more dressing on salads.
