PEAR & THYME SALAD

Is there anything better together than sweet and salty? I’ll be the first to admit that I am obsessed. Whether its adding a little spinkle of sea salt on top of cookies, making sweet and salty popcorn or adding little bursts of sweet berries in salads, I love it I love it I love it.

One of my best friends is adamant that she HATES sweet and salty things. We are currently working out our issues…

I would appreciate your help though:

While assertively hating on sweet-salty things, she is obsessed with the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.

Aren’t peanut butter and chocolate a sweet and salty combo??!! Peanut butter is more slightly salty, no?

Obviously, she disagrees. Comment your opinion. We need your help in deciding this haha.

OFF TRACK…Sorry. This is what you came for:

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pear
  • 3 slices of nitrate-free organic prosciutto (If I am ordering any kind of meat from the deli counter I always specify that I want it nitrate free. Although nitrates are naturally found in some fruits and vegetables such as beets, spinach and radishes, they are added to many deli meats as a preservative and to make their appearance more appealing. AKA super-processed.)
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • A pinch of nutmeg

METHOD

  • Slice the pear thinly. Chop the prosciutto into pieces. Lay them down in a circle overlapping on another.
  • Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme, sea salt and a pinch of nutmeg. Serve!
