Good fruit in the winter is sometimes hard to find. Unless you live in Florida, California or maybe Brazil. But hey, if you live right smack in the middle of the U.S., don’t forget about the produce aisle. Here is a delicious and ridiculously simple Pear and Grape Salad. This salad is great with lunch, perfect for breakfast and a yummy after-dinner dessert. Make this salad because it’s simple, because it’s cheap, make this because it looks pretty, because it’s in season, because it won’t make your butt big….make this salad just because!
Winter Grape Pear Salad
- 1 cup Red Seedless Grapes, quartered
- 1 Bosc (or Anjou) Pear, peeled and thinly sliced*
- 1 tbsp. Orange Juice
- 3-5 Fresh Mint Leaves
Combine all ingredients and enjoy. Yes, it’s that simple! For a little crunch and protein pow you could add a few sliced almonds on top.
*I have been sharing this salad with my 11 month old daughter, and I don’t feel like her little system is ready for the skin of a pear so I peel the pears. You can certainly leave the skin on if you prefer.
