Fall Pear and Grape Salad

Fall Pear and Grape Salad

The fall harvest is coming in as fast as the cool autumn air. This time of year is an excellent time to switch out your light summer salads with fantastic fall combination certain to keep you trim and satisfied.

This salad starts out with a pile of hearty fall greens like baby kale, chard and spinach. I like the hearty texture of the greens as well as the incredible health benefits of the raw greens. Next up are the chopped pears and grapes. You can use any types or colors that you like. Feel free to add any other fall fruit like, apples, pomegranate seeds or plums.

I dress the salad very lightly with a drizzle of a homemade apple cider vinaigrette. Whisking together a little olive oil, a drop of apple cider vinegar and then bringing the flavors together with some mustard, honey, salt and pepper will give you a perfect and inexpensive dressing for your greens and fruit.

Remember that once you dress the salad it should be served immediately or the greens will wilt. If you want to make this salad a meal, feel free to top with grilled salmon or chicken.
