Pear & Cinnamon Pecan Salad

This Pear & Cinnamon Pecan Salad is the perfect blend of savory and sweet! Made with fresh pear slices, cooked chicken, the most delicious homemade candied cinnamon pecans, and a homemade cinnamon vinaigrette dressing to tie it all together. Make it with me!

The key ingredient to making this salad really delicious is making the Candied Cinnamon Pecans! They are a real treat!! I always make a large batch of the nuts so I can have them on a hand for a couple of weeks! They are great added to salads like this, or just plain as a snack!

This recipe is the perfect salad to transition from Summer into Fall! Pears are in season here in Utah in September! It's the perfect blend of savory and sweet.

Pear & Cinnamon Pecan Salad
Yields 6 servings

2 cups cooked chicken breast

2 pears, pealed and sliced
1 cup candied cinnamon pecans
6 tablespoons parmesan cheese

4 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
4 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
