Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bosc pears + 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 4 Cups of your favorite salad greens (I used baby kale & baby spinach)
  • 1 Cup of my lemon avocado oil vinaigrette
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 4 Tablespoons avocado oil
    • Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 Batch of my veganized Feta
  • 7 oz firm tofu, pressed and cut 1/2 inch wide + 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Optional: toasted walnuts (I’m allergic to most nuts so I omitted from the recipe, but walnuts and pears paired – yum!)

Directions:

  1. Oil your grill (or cast iron grill pan) and heat to medium-high heat.  Slice your pears in half and remove the the seeds.  Brush each side with avocado oil.  Place cut-side down and grill until those beautiful grill marks appear.IMG_3126
  2. Brush both sides of your tofu with your avocado oil.  Grill each side of your tofu until grill marks appear (about 5-7 minutes).  Slice into strips.
  3. While your pears are grilling, add your garlic & lemon juice to a small bowl. While constantly whisking, slowly pour your avocado oil into the bowl.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
  4. In a large bowl toss your greens in your dressing, top with your beautifully grilled pears & tofu strips, and sprinkle your feta cheese atop.
  5. Enjoy eating whole! Processed with Rookie Processed with Rookie
