Recipe Categories : Salads : Asian Pear Salad

1. Serve your Asian pears as part of a salad. Many connoisseurs prefer Asian pears raw because of the crisp, juicy texture. Because Asian pears don't oxidize when you cut them, they won't turn brown as apples do when you expose them to the air. Since you don't have to coat the pears in lemon juice or another acid as soon as you cut them, you have more flexibility for using them in a salad.

2. Core the pear as you would an apple, cutting it open and then trimming away the center section.

3. Slice your pear into thin, long strips or dice it into bite-sized pieces.

4. Trim and slice grapefruit, celery or another fruit or vegetable that you enjoy in salads. Toss with the pears and either baby greens or romaine lettuce. Add crumbled goat cheese for additional texture and tangy flavor.

5. Top your salad with a tart, slightly sweet dressing, such as a balsamic vinaigrette.
