Vegan Pear and Walnut Salad

Waldorf salad. A total classic, one that I love to indulge in whenever I’m out.

Though, when at home I find it oddly frustrating and difficult to put a well-complimented salad together. Now that I’m a vegan and ham and cheese sandwiches are no longer an option, salads are becoming the thing I can see myself eating more often.

Mr. Cooke and I went all out when we decided to go vegan, and we have searched the internet looking for good recipes, with real flavor from actual vegans. One of the websites we found was Melanie McDonald’s A Virtual Vegan.

On Melanie’s site, I was lucky enough to come across her delicious recipe for a Pear Walnut Salad with a Maple Cinnamon Dressing.

This recipe is so good that I’m already drooling thinking about my lunch tomorrow. If you’re looking for something simple, sweet and tasty for lunch I would really recommend this!

I candied walnuts today, I feel like a super cook!

On a side note, if anyone has any good tips on how to further my skills and knowledge in salad making I would be very excited to learn!
