Mesclun With Pears and Pumpkin Seeds

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sheepdoc

The base recipe is from from Good Housekeeping Nov 2010, but I used Newman's Own Balsamic Vinagrette dressing instead of this recipe and apples instead of pears.

Easy, refreshing, delicious! The two of us ate the whole amount for a light dinner along with recipe #495309 and some flat bread. Loved the addition of pepitas.<br/>Thanks for sharing :)<br/>Made for PAC Spring 2013
