Spring Greens With Maple and Mustard Dressing

I found this dressing in the MOOSEWOOD RESTAURANT CELEBRATES cookbook. This dressing is well suited for green salads that incorporate dried or fresh fruit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl toss together all salad ingredients. Reserve some of the pears, walnuts, blue cheese, and cherries to garnish salad before serving. (This is one suggestion for the salad, but the possible combinations are endless).
  2. In a small bowl mix together all dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and toss. (Note: Do not over-dress salad. Start by pouring ½ of the dressing over salad, toss, and if necessary add more to give the greens a light coating of dressing.).
  3. Serve in one large bowl or on individual plates. Garnish with reserved pears, walnuts, blue cheese, and cherries.

Very tasty. I have played with the ingredients of the salad a lot and we have love all the combos of greens and fruit. We really like it with Craisins and sunflower seeds. Excellent dressing for spring greens.

This was a wonderful refreshing salad. The dressing was a big hit in my house and I love the ingredients of the salad. Made for Fall PAC '09
