Not Your Typical Boring Salad

INGREDIENTS: (all organic if possible) 

2 cups of baby kale or other favorite dark leafy green 
2 pears 
2 tablespoons shallot, minced 
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (Braggs) 
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
1 tablespoon flax seed oil (or add more olive oil in place) 
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped 
1/2 cup dried cranberries (no sugar added)  
Sea Salt and pepper to taste 


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Wash the pears and cut in half. Remove the core and seeds by using a spoon to scoop out the middle. Slice the pears into thin strips and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until they begin to soften, then remove from oven and cool. 
Whisk the shallot, Dijon and apple cider vinegar together in a bowl. Slowly add in the oils while stirring vigorously. Season with sea salt and pepper. 
Place greens in a bowl and toss with dressing. Greens can sit with the dressing overnight, or add the roasted pears, cranberries and walnuts and serve immediately.
