Pear Fennel Winter Salad | I Spy Plum Pie

Recipe: Pear Fennel Winter Salad

I was after a salad recently to serve alongside a hearty winter dinner and this pear fennel winter salad certainly hit the spot. It’s fresh, delicious and super simple to whip up so you can have it on the table in no time. It’s a great way to get some fresh veggies in over the cooler weather!

I found some delicious looking pears at my local fruit & veggie shop and decided a salad was in order, and this beetroot pear salad was the result! It’s oh so tasty, easy to whip up and perfect for lunch or as a side at dinner. Yum!


Recipe: Pear and Ginger Muffins

I’ve been on a bit of a ginger kick recently, putting it in everything from stir-fries to slices and now muffins! I wanted to make some muffins to take along to the football a few weekends back and I had some juicy, ripe pears sitting in my fruit bowl (which is actually a three-tiered cake stand, but that’s a little off topic!) so pear and ginger muffins it was!


Getting Juicy

For as long as I can remember, whenever I would order a freshly squeezed juice at a cafe it was always a combination of apple, pineapple and orange juice. As I got older I’d sometimes add ginger, maybe a carrot, but those three key ingredients never changed. I still standby it as a great flavour combination, but over time I have expanded my horizons somewhat, and now my freshly squeezed juices are more guided by whatever fruit and veggies I have on hand (which unfortunately rarely includes pineapple!) as opposed to habit!
