Free Healthy Recipe - Nashi Pear and Pecorino Salad

Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

If you are embarking on a three course meal (even if the third course is a chocolate egg!), start with a light fresh salad such as this one here. It cleanses the palate and stimulates digestion in readiness for the next course. Here it's all about texture. The fibre and vitamin C rich Nashi pear with its crunchy, grainy texture is delicious married to a soft sheep's pecorino.

3 tbsp olive oil
3 cups mixed green leaves, washed and dried
1 bulb fennel, finely sliced
1 nashi pear finely sliced
60 grams sheep's milk pecorino
60 grams pecan nuts

Combine the olive oil and white balsamic in a small jar.

Add the dressing to the mixed greens and fennel and toss through. Arrange the greens on one large platter or onto individual plates. Lay the nashi pear on the greens, then using a potato peeler, finely shave the pecorino and sprinkle it onto the salad. Top with pecan nuts and serve.

Note: If peeled, the level of salicylates drops to negligible amounts in the Nashi pear.
