Sort of inspired by a Rachel Ray episode I saw the other day:<br><br>
Mixed lettuce<br>
1/2 braeburn apple quartered then thinly sliced<br>
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced<br>
asiago cheese shavings<br><br>
1 lemon, juiced<br>
3 tbsp olive oil<br>
1/2 tsp dried thyme<br>
salt/pepper to taste<br><br>
Juice the lemon into a bowl and whisk in the olive oil. Mix in the thyme and salt/pepper. Add the sliced apples and onions into the dressing to prevent browning and marinate!<br><br>
Toss the lettuce into a big ol' bowl (you will want lots!) and top with the 1/2 the apple mixture. Use a vegetable peeler to shave a block of asiago cheese (or other hard cheese) on top! Eat and repeat! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Yeah, the original recipe actually called for pears. I *almost* bought a pear today to try, but I don't really eat many pears (texture thing). I need to try some of the different ones, though. I think I only ever had the run of the mill pears, which I don't really like. It's sort of like having a red delicious apple and saying you dislike all apples (I don't like red delicious but LOVE apples).... I think Beth is growing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

See if you can find the red pears, Beth. They are awesome. I never liked pears either til I started trying fresh ones. The mushiness grows on you after a while, and if you get the at just the right point, they are almost like firm peaches in texture.<br><br>
Off to look up a yummy recipe for this week....I just bought bartletts at the farmer's market.

I may have to try a red pear. I also don't like pears, too mushy for me, but I can see the apple arguement... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
