Another healthy recipe that I have collected for my pre-summer health push. I found this in the "Healthy Eating" cookbook put out by "The Australian Woman's Weekly" I was particularly drawn to it by the dressing as it is without oil which always pushes up the calorie count a good deal.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large pear, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 ounces baby spinach leaves
  • 14 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped coarsely
  • 1 stalk celery, trimmed and chopped coarsely
  • Mustard Dressing

  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh apple juice


  1. Place ingredients for mustard dressing in a screw-top jar and shake well.
  2. Place pear, spinach, nuts and celery in medium bowl and toss gently to combine.
  3. Serve salad drizzled with dressing.

I like the salad but next time I ill add just a bit of olive oil to the dressing. My husband found the dressing a wee bit strong for him. So nice to have different kinds of salads during the summer. Made for Zwt5 for the Cooks with Dirty faces.

Made for the Zaar World Tour 5 as part of an Australian medley dinner. The combination of pears, baby spinach, walnuts, and celery is a combination I never conceived. The mixture of mustard, cider vinegar and fresh apple juice give a sweet, tangy kick to the salad. I did substitue salted walnuts to balance the sweet pear. Would definitely eat again, Mates!
