Perfect dinner salad - Spinach, Pear and Blue Cheese Salad!
Fall is in full swing here. The temperatures have dropped. The leaves are changing and pumpkins are everywhere you look. I'm all ready to dive into pasta dishes and soups. However, I still want a salad. The spinach, pear and blue cheese salad is a great fall salad.
This is as simple as simple can be...just fresh baby spinach, a quick homemade blue cheese dressing, sliced pears and a few spiced pecans or honey roasted cashews!
