VCK Salad

This is a salad we often eat at Chez VCK. It is one of my favorites. There's a lot going on with it, but all the flavors work together really well. Some people don't like the combination of fruits and vegetables; I am not one of those people.

I served this salad alongside my glorious, fabulous, deliciously tasty chicken pot pies. I know you're jealous. And you should be. It was extremely delectable.

This salad has:
Baby spinach
Chick peas
Chopped almonds
Dried cranberries
Pear vinaigrette

Here's the VCK recipe for pear vinaigrette. Note the specific measurements and intricate methods.

Get some honey mustard. Put it in a bowl. Sprinkle in salt and pepper. Whisk in pear vinegar. Then whisk in olive oil 'til it's emulsified and the consistency you want it. Voila! Delicious pear vinaigrette.

Here's another look at the salad. You might want to send the kiddies out of the room. 'Cuz this is some serious food porn.
Mmm... salad!
