Asian Pear Salad recipe – w/apple cider vinaigrette

asian pear salad recipe

Finally!! We’re back to eating salad again. After the last couple of sweet, indulgent baking frenzies, we’re finally ready for something light. These poor asian pears have been neglected over the past couple days because we’ve been too busy stuffing ourselves with calorie rich foods (it’s been chilly!). But today’s warm, dry winds and bright sunshine is calling out for a simple and light asian pear salad. Asian pears are awesome!. They’re juicy, crispy and perfectly sweet to eat alone or tossed in salads. When in season and when we have parties, there is always an asian pear salad dish on our feasting table. There’s two more asian pear salads on our menu this week, so check back for more crispy, refreshing salads!
