Asian pear lends a delicate, floral sweetness to this light and refreshing juice, while the lemon and basil chat with each other in little bursts of excitement.
'Asian pear' on Serious Eats
This sandwich is modeled on a cheese plate: it's filled with Stilton, crisp pear, and sweet dates.
Since the second week of January isn't exactly prime fruit and vegetable season, I scoped out the market first before choosing this recipe from The Sunset Cookbook. Apples and oranges were abundant (no big surprises there) but the crates of persimmons and Asian pears at my local market came as a pleasant surprise. Then I remembered this Asian Pear, Persimmon, and Almond Salad.
