Pear Avocado & Goat Cheese Salad

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

This is definitely my new favorite salad. Ryan and I had a bit less than healthy day on Saturday, and on Sunday our bodies were crying for some higher quality foods. We'd never really had a salad for our meal. Usually it was a compliment to something else. Since we weren't looking to eat a ton, and we wanted to get some quality nutrition, this is where we landed, and boy was it good!

It has that sweet and savory dynamic going on. Ryan and I love foods like that!

We used kale, but I think we'd both prefer it with spinach. After seeing the cost of a container of organic spinach, the $.99 bundle of organic kale won! Haha.

So here's what's in it:

  • 3 strips of bacon

  • A bundle of kale (or spinach), chopped (about 4-5 cups)

  • 2 pears, peeled and sliced

  • 1/2 lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup of sliced green onions

  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

  • 1/3 cup of olive oil

  • 3 TBS of balsamic vinegar

  • 1 1/2 tsps of honey

  • 1 1/2 tsps of dijon mustard

  • 1 clove of garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp of salt

  • 1/2 cup of goat cheese

  • 1 avocado

And how I put it together:

  • Cook the bacon to a crisp. Set it aside to cool. Then chop into bits.

  • Massage the kale with the lemon juice.

  • Mix together the pears, green onions, and walnuts in a salad bowl.

  • Whisk together the oilive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, mustard, garlic, and salt. Pour over the salad and toss.

  • Add the bacon, goat cheese, and avocado as desired on top!
