Here is a super easy salad recipe that is perfect for a summer cookout but also works greats in the winter too! Good news...it is 100% Paleo...dressing and all! Top it with grilled chicken for a complete dinner!


- Box of baby spinach
- Shredded carrots, 1 cup
- Toasted walnuts, 1/4 cup
- 2 Ripe Pears
- Raspberries, 1/2 pint
- Orange juice, 2 tbs.
- Olive oil 2 tsp.
- Goat cheese (optional)


Begin by toasting your walnuts and poaching the pears.

Slice the pears into thin strips and place into a pan with water. Bring the water to a boil on medium to low heat. When the water starts to boil set a timer for 5 minutes and let the pears poach at a low heat.

While the pears are cooking you can assemble the dressing. In a food processor puree the olive oil, raspberries, and orange juice. Adjust the amount of orange juice based on whether you want your dressing thicker or thinner. After five minutes remove the pears from the heat and make the salad.

In a bowl, combine the spinach, carrots, walnuts and pears, and toss with the dressing. Serve with the goat cheese on the side as an option.

What's your favorite Salad? Salad topper? Are you a fruit salad or veggie salad person?
