Irresistibly Easy Salad

Easy salad recipe with white wine vinaigrette

Fall is coming upon us, and for me, that means a transition in our dinner menus. There is nothing more simple than making a fresh salad, from the dressing up! I was telling friend and photographer Alea, just how quick it is to make your own dressing. She was amazed it could be done in just 3 minutes. And once you’ve had it, you’ll never buy another bottle again! This combination is just one of my favorite easy salad recipes – I make it time & time again as a starter & for dinner.

This recipe is for my pear & walnut salad. Topped with fresh gorgonzola,  candied walnuts, & ripe barlett pears {which is key – they’re unbelievably tender & flavorful!}. I recreated this salad after my favorite restaurant in Kansas City discontinued it. It tastes even better than it looks.
