A salad has a notorious reputation for being boring, dull and far too tedious – but there are ways to make a plate of green leaves so much more appetising. Using AL Chipino Bollywood Sweet & Sour flavoured tortilla chips, which are non GMO and gluten free, we can make this delicious salad of grilled pears, feta cheese and pecans!

I like to marinate the pear slices for a short bit before grilling on a non-stick pan to perfection! With the crunch of the pecans and the tortilla chips – you’ve got yourself a pretty good deal!
