A refreshing Asian pear salad with orange ginger dressing is a healthy and delicious side dish! There’s one particular fruit that brings me back to my childhood, and those delicious treats are crisp and sweet Asian pears. You don’t need to do much to make these pears shine, just.
This simple salad has a perfect mix of bitter (arugula), sweet (Asian pear), tangy ( lemon dressing) and crunchy (pumpkin seeds). Try it with green apples or Bosc.
This recipe is from my favorite chef, Nathan Lyon. I saw him make this on his program and just had to get the recipe, it looked so good.
Delicious as a simple snack, Asian pears also work well with savory and sweet Its snappy texture is good with greens, prosciutto, and dates in a seasonal salad.
Time: 20 minutes. This salad is all about bold contrasts: crisp pears and pecans with tender frisée, and maple syrup with sharp blue cheese.
