06 Nov Carmelized Onion and Pear Salad
I’m a big fan of adding fruit to salads, but you have to be sure to “pear” it right, or it just seems out of place. Ok, bad joke… but good salad. In this recipe you can sub in a pre-made spring mix for the greens, I just happened to have a boatload of different greens from my shopping trip so I made my own green mix.
If you’re in charge of bringing the salad for any event, I highly recommend this one over your standard green salad. It’ll make you seem like a fancy person, but it’s pretty simple to make. Using a veggie peeler for the carrots is a nice little aesthetic touch, but it also gives it a good texture. If you are making this ahead of time, you may want to keep the cooked part & dressing separate until you are ready to serve.
If you want to make a meal out of this and need a little more protein, some shrimp would probably go well with this. Just add them in with the pears and onions when cooking. And if you are a dairy eater, you could probably throw on a little goat cheese or feta as well.
