I love me a good hearty dinner salad and this one is super easy and the whole family will love it! 🙂
I love the combination of dried cranberries, feta, avocado, and citrus dressing. Yum yum yum!
The pears add an interesting flavor as well. I’ve never been a huge fan of the fruit in salads, but pears have such a nice mild sweet flavor!
