Pear and Granola Salad with Greek Yogurt Poppyseed Dressing

Remember Jenna’s granola I shared with you earlier this week? Well, it’s gone (time to make more!). I threw the last of it on this salad the other day for lunch and let me tell you, granola on salad is where it’s at.

I was having a major craving for pear and gorgonzola something the other day. That something turned into a salad (surprise surprise). I had the pears, the gorgonzola, and the greens but I was missing those honey sweet crunchy nuts that I felt absolutely belonged on top of a salad like that.

At the same time I was experiencing this intense craving, I happen to get Sommer’s comment on my granola blog post that said something sort of like, “I could honestly put granola on top of EVERYTHING!!”

Ding ding ding. There ya have it.

Granola on salad. And this Greek Yogurt Poppyseed Dressing pulled it all together perfectly.

  17. Thanks for the recipe. I’ve been looking for one without canola or soybean oil, so this is perfect. You know what else is good on top of salads? Hulled sunflower seeds.
