Summer of Salad – Poached Pear (Dessert Salad)


Forelle Pear
About 1 cup red wine
A few pieces of star anise
Half a cinnamon stick
About 2 table spoons of honey
Romaine letuce
Roaring 40s blue cheese

Poach the pears in the wine, honey, and spices by simmering them over medium heat and turning them until they are soft and turn a lovely dark red. Allow the pears to cool and then slice. Serve over lettuce and garnish with cheese.

I wanted to sprinkle some candied walnuts on top of this, but I discovered too late that I was out of walnuts.

My friend doesn’t care for blue cheese, so I made hers with goat cheese.

This salad makes a lovely dessert.
