READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by spatchcock

This is on my menu for Thanksgiving. I have made this before and it is so wonderfully delicate in flavor--perfect warm up to a larger meal, and perfect Fall recipe from Cooking Light.

I made this as the main part of a very light lunch. It was delicious. The dressing was perfect for the pear/spinach combo. The only thing I did differently is used about 1/4 of the amount of oil, for personal preference. Thanks for the great recipe!
