Pear, Blue Cheese, & Walnut Salad with Maple Syrup Vinaigrette

Maple syrup salad

Happy New Year! I decided to start things off on the right foot today by making a healthy salad for dinner. Think of this meal as a "detox" if you will, especially after Joel tried to kill us both with the amount of butter he used in our dinner last night! Don't worry though, once the healthy, fresh-start vibe of the new year wears off, we'll share those, and plenty of other butter-filled recipes, with you!

For the Salad:
Greens of your choosing
1 Pear, sliced
Handful of Walnuts, toasted
Crumbled Blue Cheese
Grilled Chicken Breast, sliced

For the Dressing:
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Maple Syrup
1/2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
Pinch of Salt

Mix all ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake to combine.
