Pear & Walnut Rice Salad w/ Cranberries

I know it might be hard to believe that I work in the health field when you look at a number of the oh-so-unhealthy (but delicious) recipes I've shared with you, my foodie friends.  But believe it or not, I am a health professional.  You might think that I would feel guilt in flaunting the less than healthy treats, but I don't.  My mission is to live a life of balance where I can experience all of the physical activity I can get and enjoy eating all of the foods that I love in moderation.  Its a package deal - you have to practice both exercise and moderation for it to work - and I want you all to enjoy that same balance and happiness with me.  That being said, I expect people to be smart enough to eat only a small slice of the banana split ice cream cake, and not the whole thing on their own.  I won't feel guilty for someone else being a dummy.  Anyway, every week I post a "healthy recipe of the week" on a bulletin board at work for all to see, and this was one that I couldn't wait to test in my own kitchen.  Dick and I were both huge fans, and we fought over who got to take leftovers for lunch when it began to disappear.  So, if you had pizza for dinner last night, try balancing your menu out with this one tonight!  That way none of us will feel guilty.
