Fantastic Salad

Fantastic Salad

Remember that spiced pear recipe from the BA back in October? If you did them they should be perfect by now. And the recipe in the last issue for the spiced nuts? Combine them and you have a different and delicious salad. The vinegar in the spiced pears compliments the olive oil to perfection.

Fantastic Salad
Serves 2 – 3


– 1 cup asparagus or green beans, steamed but still crisp, cut into 3 cm lengths
– 1/4 cup dried cranberries or other dried fruit
– 1/2 cup spiced pears, chopped (see the recipe at:
– 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
– 3 Tbl. olive oil
– sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
– 3 cups of salad greens including ruccola, torn by hand
– 1/3 cup spiced cashews, (see BA Food Glorious Food Dec 24th edition)
– 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese


Put the asparagus or green beans into a salad bowl. Add the cranberries, spiced pears and the tomato halves along with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss this gently. You can set this aside for a few hours in the fridge if you aren’t serving it right away.

When you are ready to serve add the salad greens, spiced cashews and the feta cheese and toss gently and serve on a decorative plate.
