  4. While pears are cooking, wash and cut veggies (into thin strips) and arrange on a plate (Why not get the kids involved using our Foost first or next knife?)
  5. Add balsamic vinegar to the pan with the pears (be careful, it may spit)
  6. Cook for about 5 minutes or until balsamic vinegar starts to reduce
  7. Top salad with pear mixture

When figs are in season, try using figs cut in half in place of the pears.

Try adding some small dollops of goats cheese on the top of salad.
