My friend Jocelyn recently had a girls night at her house. These usually entail some chatting and catching up or sorts while our kids play (that’s sugar coating it of course…more like rough-house and reap havoc at 20 decibels to high a level….but rightfully so, as they are children) along with some munching on some of her most amazing dishes. She made a white lasagna that was to die for and paired it with this light yet savory gorgonzola pear salad and some mushroom and spinach pocket h’orederves. The salad resonated with me the most because as of late I am trying to incorporate more greens into my diet. I used a champagne vinaigrette dressing from Publix and it was the perfect touch to this salad. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
