Are you the type of person who LOVES salads? I am and I have found my new favorite! I went to a Holiday Party a week or so ago and this was served. It is a super easy salad to make but it has so much flavor!


Romaine Lettuce
(I also use iceberg lettuce)
feta cheese
walnuts and sugar for making candy walnuts
I use my own homemade dressing - balsamic vinegar and canola oil and spices
(You can buy the pre-made dry package from Good Seasons - This is what the host of the party did)

All you need to do to make this salad is put the walnuts in a pan and add some sugar. Warm until the sugar is no longer crystallized and is coating the walnuts. Keep a close eye on it and don't put it on too high of a temp..medium at most. Let cool. Then cut/chop the lettuce after rinsing. Peel and slice pears. Add feta and walnuts on top! Use the dressing on the whole salad or add to each one separately. Either way it is Scrumdidilyumptious!! Try it yourself! It can't get any better..fruits and veggies and dairy all in one salad! YUMMY! I am making this to bring to the Lavieri family Christmas Eve gathering this year.

These pictures really don't do it justice. Also I didn't add the walnuts before these photos were taken because I usually add them right before serving. Try it and let me know what you think of it! I personally could eat it at least once a day for the rest of my life! :)
