Pear Balsamic Salad with Dried Cherries

Pear Salad Close Up

A healthy salad for the colder months. Flavorful, sweet, and savory.

Servings: 3


  • 1 heaping cup candied walnuts
  • 1 6-ounce bag mixed greens
  • 1 ripe Bosc or Bartlett Pear
  • ¼ cup dried cherries



Start by creating the dressing. Clean the shallot and mince. Add this to a jar or into a small mixing bowl. Add all the remaining dressing ingredients and shake or whisk to combine. Taste and adjust flavor as needed. Set aside.

Slice your pear in about ¼” slices, removing stem and seeds. To prevent browning, do this right before serving the salad. If you need to prepare the pear a bit in advance, toss the sliced pears with a little of the More Than Olives D’Anjou Pear Balsamic to prevent browning. 

In a large bowl, add the mixed greens, half of the sliced pear, dried cherries, and half of the roasted walnuts. Drizzle with a bit of the dressing and toss to combine.

Plate the salad and garnish with remaining pears and walnuts, and another drizzle of the dressing. 

Serve immediately with any leftover dressing on the side.
