I have a soft spot for my mom's canned pears. And pear pie. Pears are my #1 favorite fruit. I have to make some pear pie...


This is truly brilliant, Simona! What a great entry, thanks a lot!


Simona, I like the dish you made with the pears. They seem to go well with balsamic vinegar.

Simona Carini

Hi Kevin. My mother used to make canned pears too, and pear juice. Pear pie: it's a great idea. I just made an apple one (sort of).

You are welcome, Ilva.

Hi Maryann. I think the pairing worked well.


This salad would make such great use of local pears available at the moment. Love the balsamic vinbegar in the dressing as well!!


Simona again same frequency...
"I always fall like a pear"
(nella terza che hai detto) ^_^

Simona Carini

You are absolutely right, Valli. And it is fun to try and make it with different types of pears.

You are right, Fabdo, same frequency. anther thought: if we never let ourselves fall, we would never fall in love, or fall asleep and dream.

I too adore ripe pears in salads, especially with bitter lettuces such as endive and radicchio and sweet candied nuts. I've never baked with them though; I should give it a try, shouldn't I?

Simona Carini

Hi Susan. Endive also sounds good. I just came back from the farmers' market and bought a bunch of pears to make baking experiments: I think we should give it a try.


Lovely salad! I still have a few pears sitting left from this years harvest!
