"I invented this recipe the year our pear tree had too many pears. I serve it on very special occasions but can be made for everyday meals too."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place the pears in a bowl with the lemon-lime soda. Set aside; this will keep them from turning brown.
  2. Place the baby spinach in a serving bowl, and add the shallot, feta cheese and pine nuts. Drain the pears, and discard the soda. Add pears to the salad, and toss to blend. Serve with raspberry vinaigrette dressing.


  • NOTE
  • To toast pine nuts, place them in a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until browned and fragrant, about 5 to 8 minutes.

I make this all the time now and not only do I love it, so does my boyfriend who is avidly anti-healthy food. It's easy. I made it without the soda and I admit it was slightly less good that way...

Needs a lot more stuff. Found it very bland.
