Anjou Pear & Blackberry Salad with a Warm Bacon Vinaigrette
Apples have been getting all the attention lately. It’s time to bring another fall fruit into the spotlight. Anjou pears are a sweet treat when they’re paired with blackberries and almonds and placed on a bed of greens and topped with a warm bacon vinaigrette.
My Anjou Pear & Blackberry Salad with a Warm Bacon Vinaigrette is the perfect way to start any holiday meal. It’s a salad we serve yearly at our Christmas table.
While I love Bartlett and Bosc pears, Anjou pears are my favorite. I love both the green and red varieties. They are sweet and mellow and are just as delicious raw as they are baked or roasted. They are fabulous in this salad paired with crumbled bacon and juicy blackberries. The warm bacon vinaigrette adds a tangy and salty flavor to the sweet fruit.
