Life has its ups and downs, but I think it would be safe to say that most of us are searching for the happy heart. My goal through Happy Heart is to share some ideas on healthy lifestyle solutions, recipes, healthy cooking, and quality supplementation. We will explore the what, why and how of healthy eating! We might wondering into some other areas of what makes for a healthy lifestyle and see where the road takes us. Together we will take the journey to find happy hearts!

1/3 cup pomegranate seeds
2 ounces Gorgonzola
Champagne vinaigrette, recipe follows
Fresh cracked pepper
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup champagne vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

In a decorative bowl or platter, add the spinach or romaine. Cut the pear into fans, and then slice again on the diagonal, add the greens, crumble the Gorgonzola onto the salad and then drizzle with about half of the vinaigrette. Top with fresh cracked pepper and lightly drizzle the whole salad with the honey. Serve immediately.
In a small bowl or glass jar, add all the ingredients except the olive oil. Mix well, then slowly drizzle in the olive oil to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.
