For the Salad
 4 oz Little Leaf Farms Baby Crispy Green Leaf Lettuce
 1 small green pear (d’Anjou, if available), cut into matchsticks
 4 oz fresh blackberries
 ½ small red onion, halved and sliced thin
 ½ cup cooked beets, diced (store bought works great here)

 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled

 Juice of 1 lemon
 Juice of 1 lime
 ½ cup olive oil
 ¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
 1 tbsp honey
Make Vinaigrette
1

In a bowl, whisk the ingredients together until smooth and silky. Season well with salt and pepper! Any leftover vinaigrette can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Toast Walnuts
2

On the stove top, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat.

3

Once hot, add the walnuts. Toast for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan frequently to get an even toast. Be careful not to burn them, this process happens quite quickly!

4

Slide the toasted walnuts onto a plate to cool while you whip up the rest of the salad ingredients.

Assemble
5

Divide the greens onto two plates. Top with pear, blackberries, red onion, beets and goat cheese. Sprinkle the toasted walnuts on top, and serve with Citrus White Balsamic Vinaigrette!
