Crunchy Pear and Celery Salad
15 mins (prep 15)
10 ingredients
6 servings
This was the recipe of the day on the RealAge website. Great salads don't have to be just a summer thing and this one seems perfect for fall and winter. The cheddar cheese and pecan pieces, along with giving you some calcium and protein, complement the pear and celery flavors nicely. (Or you can try parmesan cheese and toasted walnuts for an Italian twist.)
