Dull Day, Bright Salad

P1040985William pears have a lovely tartness to them which marry well with the heavy creaminess of Haas avocados. Try this salad for breakfast or lunch.

Recipe:

1 William Pear, sliced into thin slices

1 firm Haas avocado sliced into thin slices

a few mint leaves

a few fresh fennel fronds

a few spoons of dried pomegranate seeds (or whichever dried fruit you have that could pair well)

a few squeezes of fresh lime/ lemon juice

French or Himalayan Pink salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

Slice the avocado, drizzle in lime then place around the plate as in the picture. Slice William pear and add to the plate, bearing in mind, that the more red skin shows, the better the contrast.

Place mint leaves and fennel fronds around the empty spaces then add pomegranate seeds. Squeeze just a little more lime on the plate, add your salt and pepper.

Note: Use an interesting and textured salt so that your palate receives bursts of different flavours in one bite. Don’t place it evenly on the plate. Same with the lime and herbs. If everything is evenly flavoured, it becomes lacklustre.

Enjoy.
