Poached pears as a Christmas salad: festive and tasty!
Pears, cranberries, pecans and YUM
Perfectly poached pears! I’m still deciding on our Christmas Day salad but this is a front runner. Poached pears, dried cranberries, candied pecans and romaine in an tangy balsamic vinaigrette. Feels festive and is really yummy!
Many of you have asked what’s on our Christmas menu. Our family has so many food traditions but Christmas is the biggest one. Think classic Italian! It starts with the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve and continues Christmas Day with a full antipasto, followed by lasagna, meatballs, sausage and a big salad. It’s pretty much the same each year with a few additions here and there.
To stray too far is to risk being disowned LOL! But seriously, this is Christmas in my family. It’s tradition, adapted to be gluten-free and it’s a real treat! I hope to be able to get all our holiday dishes online!
