I have used Millican Pecans. Candied pecans are easier to make and make a wonderful salad topping. Millican pecans are the best in flavor and click here to buy Milican Pecans with a discount.

This is a healthy salad and a best way to use the seasonal produce. It takes only a few minutes to make this salad. The time taken will be only for slicing the pear snd persimmon. If you have pomegranate arils on hand, it saves time! Or just a couple more minutes!

December is National Pear Month. It's such a delicious winter ingredient. They're great baked or raw, poached or stuffed. We share Recipes From Our Dinner Table! Join our group and share your recipes, too! While you're at it, join our Pinterest board, too! Thanks Christie for hosting this event!

Pear is an amazing fruit snd we love the varieties of pear in many recipes. Butterscotch pears or apple pears are great in this Pear Dumplings. Bartlett or Bosc pears are great for these delicious Eggless Pear Almond Mini Loaves and Vegan Pear Ginger Muffins. Persimmons are equally favorite one to gobble up. Teamed with praline pecans, this Eggless Persimmon, Ginger, Praline Pecan Bread shouldn’t be missed at all.
