Spinach-Pear Salad

An unusual combination of flavors, from Go Figure Chef David, lends itself nicely to this combination of greens with a natural sweet touch.

½ cup frozen 100% pineapple juice concentrate (no sugar added), (thawed)

¼ cup grapeseed oil

3 thin slices onion, finely chopped

½ ripe pear, cut small

¼ cup chopped cilantro

¼ cup feta cheese, cut small or crumbled

¼ cup red pepper, cut small

1 bunch fresh baby spinach

 

In a bowl, mix oil and juice.  Add all ingredients above, except spinach, and let marinate at least 15 minutes.  Add spinach and gently toss.  Serve protein in or on the side of the salad for a complete meal.

 

Optional add-in: toasted pecans, or toasted pecans with a little agave dribbled over.
