Pecan & Spinach Salad

Sweet fruits and savoury flavours come together in this pecan and spinach salad.


This is an incredibly simple salad that has loads of flavour and varied textures. The combination of sweet fruits is balanced by the tang of the cheese and crunchy pecans.


I chose gorgonzola as the cheese in this recipe. It's an Italian veined blue cheese made from unskimmed cow's milk. However, any blue cheese, like stilton, will work well.


As a dressing, try this salad with my poppy sesame dressing or lemon vinaigrette. These dressings have a lovely tart/sweetness that goes well with the fruit in this salad.

 

Ingredients

(Makes 2 servings)

  • 4 cups baby spinach

  • 1/2 cup pecans, halved

  • 2oz gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

  • 20 green grapes, whole

  • 1 large pear, cored and sliced

  • lemon vinaigrette (optional)

 

Directions

In a large salad bowl, combine the ingredients and toss with your favourite lemon vinaigrette.


Serve immediately.
