Pear and Avocado
Pear and avocado, sort of an unlikely combo...but it is these two ingredients that make up one of my favorite salads to make year round. I love this salad in the winter, because it makes me think of summer, but I love it in the summer, because I am not feeling like eating hot food...but no matter the season, Asian Avocado Pear Salad is something I make often...so I decided to share the recipe that is currently only written down in my head. Why is it so good, well the buttery avocadoes are combined with sweet pears, and a salty and yet a little sweet dressing so you get all your flavor cravings in one dish. Along with the mirin and tamari in the dressing, some wasabi powder is added for a bit of a bite, and some toasted sesame oil for some depth of flavor. Altogether, something delicious, healthy and easy to prepare! Something you should definately try whatever the season!
