The pear and lettuce salad is the fresh and crunchy twist to the otherwise boring salad bowl. It’s drizzled with tangy balsamic vinegar and topped with toasted walnuts for the added crunch. It’s ready under 5 minutes.
I am loving salads these days. The Pear and Lettuce Salad is just the one I needed this afternoon to beat the heat and get in some portion of healthy food. It is even better with the toasted walnuts.
I had this salad at a restaurant called Herbs and Spices in Indiranagar, Bangalore. It was such a nice joint for good barbecue and good music, we were a regular there. I knew it I had to recreate their Pear and Lettuce Salad at home. But I made my additions and now mine is a Pear and Lettuce Salad with Toasted Walnuts.
This is such a no fuss salad that I am in love with the simplicity of it!
