    JanuaryBride's Note:

    A restaurant quality wonderful recipe from Vegetarian Times, October 2010. I think just the pear itself would be wonderful (no need to serve it atop greens). This is such a simple recipe. Love it! Easy enough to make mid-week but fancy enough for a dinner party to WOW your guests.

      We're eating salads all this week. BTW, what do you call someone having a few mixed ones and blowing up the kitchen? The answer: gailanng. Loved it! Made for ZWT#8~France.
