I use pears regularly as they go so well in savoury dishes, and this one is no exception.

I have teamed them with bacon, which gives that salty, slightly sweet taste, that is so delicious, and moreish.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3 - 4

1 large ripe avocado, sliced
180 g short cut bacon, chopped
Lettuce or salad leaves
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 large ripe pear, core removed, sliced

Heat a bit of oil in a frypan and fry the bacon pieces till they are crispy.

Add the vinegar and mustard.

Next add the sliced pears, and some salt and pepper to taste.

Cook for up to 5 minutes.


Meanwhile put some salad in a bowl and add the avocado pieces with a bit of lime or lemon to stop them discolouring.

Put the pear mixture over this and serve.


Also great the next day - take out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving.

I served it with my potato dumplings.
