Mmmmm… This felt like autumn on a plate! We had slow cooked pork roast, pear salad and whipped taters with gravy. Talk about comfort food. I don’t have a recipe for this per se, but I’ll list the ingredients of the salad below. I love cooking seasonal dishes. I wish we could enjoy each season and holiday more fully, so any contribution ~ however big or small ~ is a must!
- Salad Greens ~ I used Romaine Lettuce and Spinach
- Bartlett Pears ~ these were on sale and I suppose any variety of pear would be good. Chop them into bite-size pieces.
- Dried Cranberries
- Pecans ~ diced
- Raspberry Hazelnut vinaigrette
I don’t like pears. I think they are gritty. But I let these “ripen” in a paper sack and spritzed lemon juice over them so they wouldn’t brown before we ate them. And the salad was delicious. Apparently, pears are ok if I mix them with something!
