Beetroot and Pear Salad with Honeyed Pecans

This is another of the recipes for Lakeside Joondalup. They now have the new summer series out, so pop over and pick yourself up a set. In the meantime, no thermie required, try this beautiful salad with amazing flavours. Don’t be afraid of the pears, they add a wonderful sweetness.

It is a great salad to serve with pork (best recipe for pork belly ever in Merry Christmix ebook) or duck in particular as the sweetness of the fruit compliments those meats specifically.

Hope you enjoy!
