After eating at Henry T’s with the husband, I decided to re-create the dish I ordered–the Pear Tree Salad. This is a delicious meal to put together when you’re in a hurry. Here’s the description of Henry T’s version:
“Pears, pecans, crispy noodles and dried cranberries on a bed of greens with your choice of grilled or crispy chicken. Served with a raspberry vinaigrette.”
The salad was simple to assemble. Instead of pecans I used walnuts because I already had some stored away in my pantry. But I’ve cooked chicken with pecans before and that is a combination that I definitely recommend. Check out my recipe below.

I hope everyone enjoys! What’s your favorite mix of greens and fruit?
