Recipe Ingredients for Spinach Salad with Bosc Pears

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp mustard, whole grain
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 c sweetened dried cranberries
8 c baby spinach
2 bosc pears, peel left on, cored and sliced thinly
1/2 c cashews, toasted

Recipe Directions for Spinach Salad with Bosc Pears

  1. To make dressing, combine first 5 ingredients. Can also add some ground pepper if desired.

  2. Place onion in a medium bowl and cover with cold water for 30 minutes - this will keep onion crisp and take away raw onion taste.

  3. In small bowl, toss cranberries with 2 tbsp dressing to soften them. Set aside for at least 20 minutes or until ready to serve salad.

  4. Combine spinach, onions, pears in a large bowl. Scatter cranberries and cashews on top. Drizzle dressing on salad. Serve immediately.
