1/1 Photo of Layered Pear, Feta, Cranberry, Salad With a Balsamic Dressing
This is just a PRETTY salad. I like to serve this in a glass bowl so you can see the layers. Now obviously you can just toss it all together, but for a dinner party or pot luck dinner, this is just really nice. Simple ingredients and it goes together in just minutes. Now I use my basic vinaigrette which you will have a little left over, or if you want just use a good store bought dressing. My secret for this salad is to add a little honey to the dressing that goes really well with the pears and the cranberries. You could always add a little honey to a store bought dressing to achieve the same taste.
