Festive Pear and Cranberry Tossed Salad

We enjoyed a new salad this week!  It was simple and delicious, and would greatly compliment roast pork or poultry.

Festive Pear and Cranberry Tossed Salad

  • 8 cups salad greens, torn into bite-sized pieces (a variety of red & green colors is pretty here!)
  • 2 large pears, cored and cut up - I used one each red and green D'Anjou pears
  • 1 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
  • 1 cup pecan chips (chopped pecans)
  • 6 to 8 oz. bacon, cut up and cooked
  • 4 oz. feta cheese crumbles
  • Poppy seed dressing of your choice, or try the homemade recipe below

Toss all but the dressing together.  Serve with dressing on the side.

Poppy Seed Dressing (from bettycrocker.com)

  • 3/4 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. poppy seeds

Whisk first 3 ingredients together until smooth; add poppy seeds and mix well.  Serve.  Store in refrigerator.
