DELICIOUS

Description

I LOVE LOVE LOVE fuity salads. And I usually make them up as I go. This one is inspired by a parmesan and pear salad I had in a gorgeous restaurant in Florence Italy overlooking the Ponte Vecchio.

It’s on a bed of romaine lettuce and red cabbage and it is jam packed with apples, pears, and chewy orange rind. And the crunchy walnuts and sharp cheese just complete it. Bravo!!

This salad is literally going to be on repeat in my kitchen. You have to try it.

Feel free to add or subtract based on what you have in your pantry and what is in season. After all, we are all master chefs and I know I am doing my job if you change, tweak and experiment with my recipes.

To your continued health
