Pear & Walnut Salad



Pear and Walnut Salad

This was a quick lunch I made last week: I was recovering from a bout of sickness, I'd been eating nothing but heavy comfort food, and I needed something a bit lighter. Plus, the sun was shining, and nothing says 'salad!' like the first of the summer sunshine.

Using reduced fat mozzarella, this comes out at about 170 calories per plateful, so it's eminently suitable for a low-calorie day (while feeling indulgent!)

This looks yummy. Also I always get in the same salad rut (ie, throw everything together with a drizzle of olive oil and vinegar); this would be a nice summer-y change!
