Pear Salad Dressing with Lemon

This sweet, tangy pear salad dressing is delicious served over a spinach and pear salad. The dressing contains lemon juice and white wine vinegar to contrast with the sweetness of the pear, and some extra-virgin olive oil to make it go further and give it a nice, rich texture. If you want to serve this over a spinach-based salad, you might like to toss two cups of spinach with a little diced sweet onion and some warmed walnut halves. Add a chopped pear to the mix as well, and some soft goat’s cheese if you fancy it. A couple of tablespoons of dressing is sufficient for each portion.

If you do not have a pear to make this salad dressing recipe, you can use a few tablespoons of pear juice instead. If this is the case, you can simply whisk the ingredients rather than using a blender. When using pears to make a pear salad recipe or a pear salad dressing, it is best to use ripe ones. Hard pears are not so sweet, juicy, or enjoyable, and extra-firm ones can be too mushy.

Pears are an often neglected and forgotten-about fruit, so why not reintroduce this tasty treat to your palate by making this unusual salad dressing? The unique taste of the pears goes so nicely with the other flavors in this dressing, you are sure to love it.

Pear and lemon are the main flavors in this salad dressing, and the sweetness of pear combines beautifully with the citric brightness of the lemon.

Try this over mixed greens, adding some crunchy croutons or nuts, and perhaps some blue cheese or cheddar cubes to add another texture to the dish.
