Best. Salad. Ever.

Who knew there could and/or should be a recipe for a salad?! It's usually just throw in a little this and a little that and call it a day.  Or call it a salad.

Well my friends, I have discovered the most delicious salad on earth {in my opinion anyway} that I want to share with you. It is from the "Oh She Glows" website. Check out her book and facebook page too!

I changed a few small things to make it more my taste, but nothing major... Get out your pen and paper for this one. Seriously.

For the salad:
organic baby lettuce {she recommended kale}
1 organic pear, thinly sliced and chopped {she did not recommend organic, but I buy organic whenever I can find it.}
1/2 cup pomegranate arils {go to youtube to see how to open one up so easily it's silly.}
1/4 cup pepita seeds {these are the little green pumpkin seeds.}
3-4 tbsp large flake coconut
{she suggests 1-2 tbsp hemp hearts and 1-2 teaspoons of black sesame seeds, but I did not use either one.}
Sprinkle of cinnamon

For the dressing:
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
sea salt and pepper

Whisk together dressing ingredients.
Toss in the lettuce until it is coated.
Add the toppings.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Voila. Best. Salad. Ever.

Here is a pic of it after I made it. And yes, I ate the entire giant bowl of it all by myself! Yum.
