DIRECTIONS

  • Place the sliced pears in a non-reactive bowl along with the soda or lime juice. Toss to coat well to keep the pears from oxidizing (turning brown).
  • Place the washed baby spinach leaves in a salad bowl. Add the green onions, feta and nuts. *NOTE: Do not add the nuts to the salad until just before serving.
  • Drain the pears and discard the liquid.
  • Add the drained pears to the salad bowl and toss to blend.
  • Serve salad with raspberry vinaigrette on side.
