Pear and Crispy Prosciutto Salad
My Pear and Crispy Prosciutto Salad makes for a delicious side salad that’s perfect with an ‘anytime’ meal or for an interesting option at your next dinner party. Grilled or baked pear slices are mixed with toasted pecans, goat cheese and arugula with an amazing crispy prosciutto and a balsamic ginger dressing. Wanna really do something different? Serve this salad with your Thanksgiving or holiday meal – your guests will thank you!
Have you tried grilling or baking fruit? Pears are my favorite and another way I like to serve them is Baked Pears with Goat Cheese, Honey & Pecans.
If you don’t have a grill you can bake the pear slices in the oven. They are brushed with the salad dressing before cooking so they take on a delicious flavor and natural sweetness.
After eating this salad, I wondered why I had never cooked pears before now. The sweet pears, crispy prosciutto, tangy goat cheese and toasted pecans, make the best taste combination.
Pears are usually sold under-ripe, which is great for this recipe. If you try and grill ripe pears they will flop and fall apart. Anjous pears that are still firm are the perfect type for cooking, but not all supermarkets carry all varieties so any firm pear that you can find is perfect.
