The tricks to getting the most out of the presentation of this salad is to use a vegetable spiralizer.

The salad was ready in a flash. Great for busy days when time is at a premium.  You can use any veggies you like.  I added tangerine slices, avocados and normal salad veggies. 

The real taste sensation in the salad is the Litehouse Pear Gorgonzola salad dressing.   The dressing has just 50 calories for 2 tablespoons and tastes yummy.

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons pear nectar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Half a 6-ounce ripe red Bartlett pear, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup coarsely crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus extra for seasoning

The salad was delicious and I loved the way the spiralized vegetables look on top of the greens.  Definitely a winner and it’s really worth looking for this wonderful dressing too.

Hi Jennifer. I'm glad you got it to work. I have not heard that people could not get the contest widget to work. What happened when you tried to share?

I would love to get a spiralizer that works. I bought one, but it seems to be a bit of a lemon. It came without the brush, and it just worked so so. The one you are giving away looks to be sturdier.

I have seen these on several websites but really thought they would be more trouble than its worth. I would love to give it a try.

Hi Pat. It is worth entering the contest to see if it is something you would use a lot. I found it great for the hard veggies but not for the more watery ones. Carol
