Best. Fecking. Salad. Eva.

This is what I coined a new salad creation about a week and a half ago on my Facebook page (hey! did you know I have a Facebook page? Give it a like for tips, food, articles, inspiration, garden stuff, etc.: livinglikelinds).

It has started warming up, which brings for me, an urge to garden and make lots of salads-some staple salads, and some new salads. I think you’ll enjoy this cinnamon balsamic pear salad as much as I did!

Best. Fecking. Salad. Eva.

  • 3/4 bag butter lettuce
  • 2 Bosc pears, cut in chunks
  • 1/2 small diced red onion
  • 3-4 bacon strips, broken into bits
  • 1 TBSP (or drizzle) raw honey
  • Drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Sprinkle of kosher salt/pepp
  • Generous sprinkle of cinnamon

I threw all the dry ingredients (except for the bacon) into a large bowl, and drizzled with honey and balsamic vinegar, and tossed. This incorporated the cinnamon well (sidenote: Why have I not added cinnamon to salads before?). I topped with bacon bits. The light sweetness of the honey, toned down the balsamic, and the strong red onion paired well with the sweet Bosc pears. It’d be a great party or summer grilling salad!
