Baby Greens with Pears, Nuts and Parmesan

Here's a fabulous threesome: nutty Parmesan cheese, juicy pears and candied nuts. The homemade salad dressing is equally fantastic. Ingredients 1/2 cup(s) canned cranberry sauce, whole-berry or jellied 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar 2 Tbsp water 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste 1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste 8 cup(s) mixed baby greens 3 medium pear(s), ripe but firm, cored and thinly sliced 2 oz honey-roasted almonds, walnuts or pecans (about 6 Tbsp) 6 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, shaved (use a microplane or vegetable peeler to get paper-thin shavings) Instructions In a medium bowl, whisk together cranberry sauce, vinegar, water, oil and mustard; season to taste with salt and pepper. Place greens in a large serving bowl. Add dressing, pears and nuts; toss to mix and coat. Scatter shaved Parmesan on top. Yields about 1 1/3 cups per serving. Notes Thinly sliced apples make a great substitute for the pears.
