I am loving salads these days. The Pear and Lettuce Salad is just the one I needed this afternoon to beat the heat and get in some portion of healthy food. It is even better with the walnuts.

I had this salad at a restaurant called Herbs and Spices in Indiranagar, Bangalore. It was such a nice joint for good barbecue and good music, we were a regular there. I knew it I had to recreate their Pear and Lettuce Salad at home. But I made my additions and now mine is a Pear and Lettuce Salad with Toasted Walnuts.

This is such a no fuss salad that I am in love with the simplicity of it!


Lettuce provides you Vitamin B-6, C, A, E, and K

They are a rich source of folate, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin vitamins

Walnuts contain the amino acid l-arginine which is good for the heart

Pear fruit is packed with health benefiting nutrients such as dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins
