Pear, Prosciutto and Fennel Salad (serves 4)
This recipe is for my sister-in-law who has just picked 75 pears from her pear tree! Pears are nice in a salad (just make sure you serve it straight away else pears will go brown) and the fennel provides a contrasting crunch. The strips of prosciutto gives extra flavor and goes as well with pears as it does with melon (now there’s another idea!). Rather than lettuce I used arugula/rocket which adds a slightly peppery taste. I like this salad as an appetizer. Omit the prosciutto and it’s perfect for vegans/vegetarians.
1 large pear – sliced or diced
1 head of fennel or less if large
4 slices of prosciutto – sliced
Mix all ingredients together well and serve with a lemon vinaigrette.
