Blue Cheese & Pear Salad


There's a salad at a local restaurant that I cannot get enough of, so one night I decided to make my own version. This salad is not only filled with protein, iron, and calcium, but it is also the perfect combination of sweet and salty!

Ingredients

3 cups mixed greens (my favourite is a combination of baby arugula, romaine, and spinach)
1/4 cup sliced onions
3 Tbsp hot banana peppers
1/4 cup ground chicken, cooked
1/2 pear (use the canned version, but the packed in water - not syrup)
3 Tbsp blue cheese crumbles
3 Tbsp red wine vinaigrette (below) 

Red Wine Vinaigrette
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp honey
3/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions

1. Layer salad with ingredients - enjoy!
