Enter the delicious salad. I love anything with fruit, and greens are no exception. Add pretty much any berry that is on sale and you have a salad that you won't have a problem finishing. The cinnamon roasted pear slices are great on their own, but if you don't want to run your oven then raw pear slices will work just as well. Rating 8/10.
