"This nutty salad is absolutely beautiful with mixed greens," suggests Marian Platt of Sequim, Washington. "Pears and apricot nectar add fruity sweetness."
- 1/3 cup apricot nectar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh mint or 1/4 teaspoon dried mint
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
- 3 medium pears, peeled, halved and sliced
- 12 cups mixed salad greens
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
- In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the first six ingredients; shake well. Combine the pears and dressing in a large serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
- Just before serving, add greens to pear mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle with walnuts. Yield: 6 servings.

"This was delicious! It was fresh, light tasting and the dressing for it was just right. I added pomegranite seeds for crunch and color plus I topped it with chicken breast. It was great!"
