Inspired by epicurious.com, I decided to put my chopping skills to work as I was intrigued by a slaw based on the Asian pear.
If you haven’t had an Asian pear before, you are missing out! It’s so juicy yet it’s very crunchy. Asian pears are usually quite large in size; therefore, I recommend sharing a pear between two or three individuals.
Looking for a twist on your traditional slaw? Looking for a lighter option as the warmer weather is upon us? Try this recipe out.
