Pear, Walnut, and Savoy Cabbage Salad


• ½ cup olive oil.
• 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar (I use Braggs).
• 3 Tbsp. local honey (I buy at farmers market).
• ½ cup walnuts, chopped.
• 1 head Savoy cabbage, thinly sliced.
• 2 pears, cored and chopped.
• 1 carrot, julienne.
• Pecorino Romano cheese or Parmesan (buy whole, not processed).
• A pinch of Salt and pepper, to taste.


1 – For the dressing, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.
2 – Roughly chop walnuts and place in a dry skillet over low heat for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly browned and fragrant. Remove from heat and place in bowl to cool.
3 – Prepare salad by slicing 1 head of Savoy cabbage. Core 2 pears and chop. Peal 1 carrot and julienne. Shave about 1 cup of Pecorino cheese or Parmesan with a vegetable peeler.
4 – Place all ingredients in a large bowl and drizzle dressing over top. Toss thoroughly and taste for seasoning.
5 – Plate salad in a pretty bowl or plate and enjoy!

This is a great salad for a grab-on-the-go lunch or to bring to work. Add some grilled chicken for a complete meal.
