Stuffed Pear Salad
Came across this by accident...but Lordy, does it bring back a flood of memories. Stuffed pear salad is a real thing, and it was a staple at every holiday, special occasion, and Sunday dinner when we were growing up. I used to get to assemble each little dessert plate, carefully arranging the components with love and anticipation. The crispness of the lettuce leaves provided a refreshing base, complementing the delicate sweetness of the perfectly ripe pears so I thought I would share my recipe with you, guys.
