Pear and Celery Salad

cindy sandberg


I saw a version of this salad from Eating Well and thought it looked so light, crunchy and delicious! I switched the ingredients up a bit to fit my taste and what I had on hand and put it together for lunch. It's one of the best fruity salads I've ever eaten!
