I have made a very similar recipe but with fresh pears and I also garnished with some walnut halves. Green apples are a great substitute for the pears.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 (16 ounce) can pears, slices drained

  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
