Grilled Pear Walnut Salad

grilled pear salad
By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

I had this salad while I was away in the Blue Mountains, and enjoyed it so much, I was inspired to create my own take. This salad is easy and delicious, and works as either a main or side dish. The fresh nuts and grilled pear, along with the dressing, are the big event of this salad. If you don’t want dairy, sub in avocado or nut cheese in place of the blue cheese.
