Chicken and Pear Salad

Chicken and Pear Salad

Spinach, honey, and pears make this dish sweet, savory, and delicious.

The skin of a pear contains about four times as many phytonutrients as the flesh, and about half of the fruit’s total fiber, so if you prefer to, you can leave the skin on in this recipe.
