Pomegranate and Pear Salad

March 30, 2010

Summer seems to be drawing to a close for the south-eastern states of Australia but for our cousins up north, you might enjoy this beautiful summer salad recipe from one of my favourite blogs, The Paper Apron.   Chef-in-Editor, Kim – hails from Colombia, South Carolina and writes a very entertaining blog containing delicious recipes, beautiful photography and engaging articles.  This month’s Muhummara recipe (spicy Middle Eastern dip) looks sensational and will certainly be on Madame Bonbon’s menu this autumn.  Special thanks to Kim for allowing me to share this delicious recipe.
