A bit of spice with juicy fruit makes for a great combination. If you like a salad with a little zip, this is the salad for you!
In a small frying pan, toast the cashews in a little Olive Oil until golden brown. Set aside and let them cool.
Use the same frying pan to cook the bacon until crisp. Set on a paper towel to drain off the excess grease. Coarsely chop the bacon, and set aside.
In a small bowl, stir together the rosemary, curry powder, salt, and toasted cashews.
To make the dressing, get another small bowl and whisk together the More Than Olives Pineapple Balsamic, mustard, and honey. Slowly whisk in the More Than Olives Jalapeno Olive Oil, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, to your taste.
In a large salad bowl, add the mixed salad greens, pear slices, grapes, and bacon. Drizzle on the dressing and sprinkle with nut mixture. Toss to distribute everything evenly.
Serve immediately, before greens begin to wilt.
*If you like the taste of curry, but don’t enjoy the spice in Jalapeno, you can substitute with our More Than Olives Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil or More Than Olives Arbequina Olive Oil.
