Pear and Grape Salad

What a hectic day, yes I can tell school is fast approaching. I was busy in meetings most of today. I spent much of the afternoon doing paperwork, going through the children’s files making sure everything is in order. Tomorrow I will be at school checking out the room for my program and making sure all my supplies are there. Oh let the fun begin. Philip on the other hand has been off since Friday of last week, works tomorrow Thursday and then has the long weekend off. It’s labor day weekend and Rib fest in Burlington. Not something that we actually like but they have live music and stuff.

Since it was another red hot and humid day today we really didn’t want anything hot or that required the oven to be on. We’ll be making enough of that stuff soon enough I suspect. I decided to make this simple and great pear and grape salad. We bought some fresh pears and some yummy grapes as the base of the delicious salad.

Next we added some fresh red curly lettuce, shredded radicchio and then some shredded Belgian endive.

After those yummy fresh ingredients we then added some green seedless grapes, walnuts and caramelized onions.
