          1. First, make balsamic reduction. You can also purchase reduced balsamic and skip this step.
          2. Simmer balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a small saucepan, stirring continuously for about 5–10 minutes until thick. Set aside.
          3. Cook bacon tempeh for about 5 minutes until warmed through and browned on the edges.
          4. Assemble each salad with 2 cups spring mix, ¼ pear, 2 tablespoons cranberries, 2 tablespoons pecans, 1 strip of bacon (crumbled), and ¼ balsamic reduction. Enjoy!
