  • 4-5 cups of chopped dark greens (dandelion, arugula, radicchio, endive, mustard greens, kale, swiss chard)

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbl. whole grain mustard
  • Pinch sea salt

  2. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Melt in the coconut oil, then once hot, add the pears. Cook for a few minutes to slightly soften and brown them.
