Holiday Spinach Salad Wreath
3-4 cups baby spinach
1 Bosc pear, washed, skin-on, cut into thin slices
1 cup whole red seedless grapes
1/4 cup goat cheese (or blue cheese if you prefer)
1/4 raw walnuts
your favorite vinaigrette dressing
Unrefined sea salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
1. Place a 4-inch bowl upside-down in the center of a larger round serving platter. Using the small bowl as a guide, neatly arrange the spinach in a wreath form around the bowl.
2. Fan 3 to 4 pear slices at 5 equal spots around the wreath. Place 4 to 5 grapes in-between. Sprinkle the goat cheese crumbles and walnuts in-between the pear and grapes.
3. Top salad with freshly-ground black pepper, if desired. Carefully remove the bowl from center. Serve with dressing.
