Summer Pear & Walnut Salad

So excited that warm weather has come to stay in Texas! 🙂 It has been 80º the past couple of days and I’m loving it! Even as I write this I’m sitting outside in my backyard with my lap top looking at my newly planted flowers and herbs… ahhh. For all of you out there who are grimacing at me while you’re reading this because you still have snow, I’m sorry. I have experienced both worlds, and lived in the “tundra” aka Wisconsin for 22 years so I can definitely empathize with you. However, I got smart and moved. hehe. 🙂

Ok, so the reason I was telling you about the weather was to set the stage. I don’t know about you but whenever spring/summer time start to come I always want either something grilled or a cool and refreshing salad. Well folks, today it is that cool refreshing salad. Here is a Summer Pear & Walnut Salad to get you in the summertime spirit.

To get started dice 2 pears into small pieces.
