Walnut & Pear Summer Salad

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

My all time favorite food during the summers are salads! The key to making them taste good and be a hit among the whole family is to trade the iceberg lettuce for some fresh greens and summer fruit. The true testament to how good this is is that you don’t even need salad dressing. How’s that for a salad?
