Winter pear salad

December 14, 2014

Whenever I can I try to eat seasonally. Generally it suits me as I crave heavier meals in the winter and love eating butternut squash and room-temperature fruits such as apples and oranges. While in the summer I love fresh tropical fruits like mango.

While this is a lighter dish it features some ingredients that are in season now: pears and pomegranates.

I love this calendar as a guide to what’s in season.

The salad is delicious, super easy to prepare.  It’s a real showstopper, and the green and red mean it would look amazing served at Christmas time. Serve small portions as a starter or make a large portion as a side dish.

Lay out some baby spinach on a plate.  Add slice pears, chopped walnuts, pomegranate seeds and crumbled feta cheese.  Whisk together 1 tablespoon runny honey with 2 tablespoons olive oil.  Drizzle dressing over the salad.
