1–2 D’Anjou pears, seeded and sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt (plus more to taste)

PREPARATION

  • Place washed greens in a bowl.
  • Combine lemon juice, honey, olive oil, and salt in a bowl and whisk until emulsified.
  • Pour over the greens and toss gently.
