Pear, Feta, Walnut Salad (Recipe)

This was a favorite Friday meal for one of my closest friends and I back when we were single and living in Winnipeg in our own houses. I would head over on Friday nights after work and we would make a big batch of this baby.

After we devoured this salad, we would sit down with a glass of wine and watch Sex and the City, followed by Oz.

Yup.

Two single girls.

This could be part of why neither of us were married until we were in our thirties.

But wow, that salad was good!

Over a decade has passed and I don’t remember all of the ingredients, but this is my recreation of the recipe and I still eat way too much of it when I make it.
