I love a nice simple salad but what makes this a bit different is the vinaigrette which has the same components as a honey dijon dressing but I added lime juice instead. It adds a nice bit of zip to the salad recipe.

Yields around 1 cup

Ingredients for the salad:
  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • fresh baby spinach
  • green onions, sliced diagonally
  • cucumbers, sliced thin
  • barlett pears, sliced thin
  • mushroom slices (optional)

Ingredients for the dressing:

  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • juice of one lime
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp liquid honey
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

In a large salad bowl, add in all of the salad ingredients and set aside. In a small mixing bowl, whisk in all of the dressing ingredients with the olive oil being drizzled in last. It should be all emulsified together. If serving the salad later put both the salad and the dressing separately into the fridge to serve cold.
