Almonds (sliced)
Cranberries
1 Pear
Blue or Feta Cheese
Vinaigrette Dressing

Directions:
Directions:
Sugar coat the almonds by putting the almonds in a pan on medium heat. Sprinkle with sugar. Stir continuously until the sugar is melted. Put more sugar on and continue stirring. Repeat twice. When done, spread out on aluminum foil, so that they will harden but not stick to the surface. Crunch them up.

Cut the pear into small pieces.

Mix all of the ingredients together. Any vinaigrette dressing will work, but a recipe I like to use is: 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard. Whisk together and serve on the side of the salad.

Many of the ingredients in this salad can be substituted. Walnuts or pecans work, as do many other cheeses and fruit! Enjoy!
