Pear & Carrot Salad with Curry Vinaigrette

Inspiration: In season pears & craving a different salad. I paired this salad with Pork Chop Milanese with Creamy Lemon Dijon Sauce & Creamy Parmesan Orzo.

Creation: Pear & Carrot Salad with Curry Vinaigrette

 

What:

  • 1 1/2 lbs carrots: trimmed, peeled & cut matchstick thin or shaved (save time & purchase prepackaged carrots: fresh are more tasty)
  • 2 firm pears: recommend D’Anjou
  • 2 TBSP fresh parsley: chopped
  • 2 TBSP White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 TBSP Curry Powder
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

How:

  • Cut carrots into matchsticks or use vegetable peeler to shave into thin slices
  • Quarter, core, stem the pears & cut into thin slices
  • Place carrots, pears & parsley in large bowl
  • Using a blender or food processor: combine white wine, curry powder, honey, salt & pepper
  • While blender or food processor is running pour the olive oil & mix until fully combined

Plate Up:

  • Pour vinaigrette over the salad
  • Toss and place on desired serving dish or platter
  • Optional: Sprinkle with Toasted Walnuts

The sweetness of the pears & carrots blended so well with curry vinaigrette. Pear & Carrot Salad cleansed the pallet while dining on Pork Chop Milanese with Creamy Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette. The pairing of all the courses were splendid.

Ciao’
