Zesty Pear Salad with Parmesan and Chives
Finding great fresh produce this time of year isn’t always easy here on the east coast. Our family eats heaps of apples. But pears can also be an excellent winter fruit option. They tend to be on the delicate side, so if you do pick some up, be sure to try and use them within a day or two.

I had a few pears sitting on the counter this morning, and thought they’d make an excellent base for an easy salad. I cut the pears thinly, tossed them with Parmesan, chives, and a light, lemony vinaigrette, and loved the results. If you’re looking for some creative cold weather sides, this easy salad might just be the ticket!
