Roasted Pear, Feta Cheese, Watercress and Hazelnut Salad


Try this pear, feta cheese, watercress and hazelnut salad as a first course at your special occasion meal. You could also substitute walnuts for a healthy and tasty version if you prefer (or if hazelnuts are difficult to obtain).

Note that this recipe comes to us courtesy of Turkey, a food-producing country that's one of the few nations in the world that grows more than it needs to feed itself. In Turkey, eating according to the seasons and buying locally is commonplace. The typical Turkish diet relies heavily on a variety of vegetables and these are prepared in such a way as to leave them tasting deeply and unforgettably of little but themselves.



6 Corella or other variety of pears
1/2 cup pomegranate molasses (or flavor blackstrap molasses with a bit of pomegranate juice)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cups watercress
7 ounces feta or goat cheese
1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped


2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses
1 teaspoon cumin seeds, dry roasted and crushed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, as with all fruits and vegetables, wash vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



For the pears:

1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Cut the unpeeled pears in half lengthwise and remove the cores.

2. Cut the halves into thirds lengthwise, then place the pear wedges in a single layer in a small baking dish.

3. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses and olive oil and roast for about 30 minutes, turning once, until the pears are very tender and deep golden all over and the cooking juices are reduced and sticky.

4. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature.

For the salad and dressing:

1. Combine the vinegar, garlic, pomegranate molasses and cumin in a small bowl and whisk well to combine.

2. While whisking constantly, slowly add the olive oil in a thin stream, then season with salt and pepper.

3. Spread the watercress over a serving platter, then scatter over the pear, cheese and hazelnuts.

4. Drizzle the dressing over the top and serve.
