    1. 1
      Wash and peel pears. Being careful not to loose any of the juice, cut the pears into cubes and place in a salad bowl. Dice the pecorino and add to the chopped fruit. Mix together and leave to stand for ten minutes.
    2. 2
      Finely grind black pepper over top of mixture before serving.

      We had a lovely salad in Sienna with the same combination. Their presentation was SO memorable, that we have served it many times. The pears and cheese were sliced in thin strips and placed alternately on the plate, in sunburst design. To finish, there was just a drizzle of honey over the entire serving. Looks VERY dramatic ! Thanks for the memory, Lauralie.

      Great combo! I went ahead and peeled the pears, since the recipe instructs doing so and I was planning to grab a quick photo. Next time I would probably just leave the peels on, though, to add a little contrast (the pears and cheese looked about alike :) ). Thanks for posting!

      Simple, but soooo good! The pepper is outstanding and adds a nice flavor to it all. I used red pears. I will definitely do this again. Thanks Lori!
