apple pear salad

In our family, we love Costco for many reasons. The most recent reason? This recipe. Came across it in The Costco Connection magazine, actually. Made this for the first time last night and oh. my. goodness. We are so hooked. Absolutely, positively our new favorite salad. Thank you, Costco.


[ dressing ]

3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. orange juice
3 Tbsp. pecan halves, chopped (we prefer glazed pecans)
2 Tbsp. honey
Sea salt
Black pepper, ground

[ salad ]

6 c. loosely packed baby mixed greens
1 apple pear, halved, cored, and sliced into thin wedges
*NOTE: We used a pear and an apple, which worked just fine too
1/3 c. pomegranate seeds or dried cranberries
1/3 c. feta cheese
