Salads are our favorite! We love everything from Cabbage Salad with Popped Sorghum and Super Food Wilted Salad to Layered Taco Salad and Super Cruciferous Salad. We have found personally that simply adding a nice green salad everyday is one of the easiest and most effective ways to feel amazing! When packed with great ingredients salads are high in vitamins and minerals, fiber, antioxidants, healthy fats and protein and they really help you feel satiated (the feeling of being full). After reading a little by Doctor Fuhrman and putting the salad a day theory to the test we are believers! And they are also really quick and easy to put together. Totally a win, win situation.
Even with the colder weather coming on we still try to get our daily salads. Now there are fun fall foods (say that fast 5 times) to add to the mix! One of which is pears. Boy, do they add something special to this dish (and they taste amazing on a Classy Pear Pizza)! Combine them with the savory dressing and flavorful feta and you have a real treat for your taste buds.
Sweet and Savory Pear Salad

- 1 ½ cups quinoa, cooked

Put all ingredients in a Mason jar and shake.
