What did the fruit say to his girlfriend? We make a nice pear! Pears pair well with many dishes. During winter months, when fresh fruit is harder to come by, canned pears are a great way to get your daily fruit servings. MyPlate shares with us five ways to use canned pears.
Canned pears make a great addition to salsas, salads, quesadillas, and desserts. Look below for links to the recipes listed, plus a few more of my favorite pear recipes.
The recipe calls for mesclun greens, but almost any type of green will do. Try a bag of spring mix, fresh spinach leaves, or romaine lettuce. The sweet, soft pears were a great addition to the crunchy lettuce. Try this recipe, or another using canned pears this week. Come on back and let me know how you liked it. Enjoy!
