Fig & Pear Mixed Green Salad

On most days I make a standard salad for lunch – nothing exciting. But whenever we make this salad – it makes eating a salad exciting again. This salad is a mix of bright greens, crisp pears, sweet figs and salty gorgonzola. The dressing is light and fresh. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory. Instead of a recipe of exact salad measurements – we’ll list out the ingredients to make 1 salad and you can adjust if you need more.
