Greens, Asian Pear, Pecan Salad
This variation on my kale salad has a gourmet kind of twist to it. Enjoy this terrific combination of flavors, including sweet Asian pears, sesame oil, and kale.
½ bunch of kale chopped coarsely
½ bunch of chard chopped coarsely (red chard makes for a pretty presentation)
1 c. shredded romaine lettuce
1 Asian pear
¼ c. pecan halves (or more if you like)
2 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp. maple syrup
½ tsp. onion granules
Remove the stems from the kale and chard and then chop it. Shred the lettuce. Chop the Asian pear. Combine the greens in a bowl. Add the oil, vinegar, maple syrup, and onion granules, and toss the salad until the greens are fully coated with the dressing. Add the chopped Asian pear pieces and fold them into the top of the salad gently. Sprinkle the pecans over the top.
Eat well, be well, live deliciously!
