Well, this is one way to make salad more exciting. How charming, right? And they're really easy. You just need to remember to do one important thing.
We saw this salad at The Novice Chef blog, where Jessica explains how to cut out the core and reassemble the pear (each slice ends up looking like a doughnut), so that you can eat the salad without having to maneuver around seeds.
The key is to brush the pear slices with lemon juice to prevent browning. And that drizzle of honey is a lovely final touch.
You could probably do this with an apple, too, no? Such a cute way to serve a Fall salad at a dinner party.
