Perfect salad for a winter's day or night. The combination of pear, pistachios, goat cheese, the crunch from the pomegrante and sweetness from the orange vinaigrette...yum!
1 ripe pear, diced
1 avocado, diced
⅔ cup shelled pistachios
⅔ cup crumbled raw goat cheese
½ cup diced red onion
Seeds from 1 pomegranate
1 head romaine, roughly chopped almost diced (goal is to have all ingredients around the same size)
⅓ cup fresh squeezed OJ
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 T honey if desired (test dressing before adding….may be sweet enough for your taste)
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
⅓ cup olive oil
Directions: Whisk all dressing ingredients together for 30 seconds until combined or my favorite is to shake in mason jar. Add all ingredients of salad in large bowl...it's that easy. Drizzle dressing over salad. Toss until combined. Serve immediately.
