    AndreaVT96's Note:

    A salad that serves well as a light meal. Received at a Weight Watchers meeting. 4 WW points per serving. The original recipe suggests using a red pear for color, but adds that you can substitute any ripe pear. Also, if you can't find roasted almonds, roast your own by spreading almonds on a baking sheet and roasting them in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. In summer months, you could easily swap ripe peaches or nectarines for the pears.

      This is a really good salad combination! I confess, I used a bottled lite honey dijon dressing (the one listed here looks good, though) and I had mixed baby greens instead of spinach. Delicious! Thanks for posting.
