PEAR, WALNUTS and RICOTTA SALAD

Hola chicos! :)

another beautiful day in paradise! We just arrived at the beach of Xpu-Ha but we're in love already! The sand is white, the water is crystal clear and warm, we're lucky enough to be literally 10 seconds walking  from the water and it's also kinda quite, which might be due at the fact this is low season. We have our own kitchen in the house so we can cook our meals and everything is perfect! :) 

I hope wherever you guys are, you're having an amazing time! 

Today I have for you a delicious vegetarian salad, that is really easy and quick to make, perfect for a busy week lunch! Try it and let me know what you think! :)
