On a recent holiday I had this lovely peppers and pearΒ salad at a hotel. I didn’t ask the Chef for the recipe, assuming that I’d find it on the internet. When I got home and searched for it, I didn’t have any luck. So taking a guess at the ingredients, I came up with this and I must say it tastes much the same.

Peppers and Pear Salad

So if you’re looking for a healthy, colorful, crunchy salad here’s the recipe.

Peppers And Pear Salad


1 Red pepper
1 Yellow pepper
1 Pear (I use the hard yellow Chinese pears)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Dried parsley
Tabasco sauce to taste
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon Olive oil


Julienne the peppers and the pears. Heat the oil on medium flame. Add the pears and cook for about 5 minutes on low heat till they soften. Add the balsamic vinegar and Tabasco sauce. Add the peppers and stir fry for about 3 mins (you don’t want the color of the peppers to change). Sprinkle with parsley and salt and you’re ready to go!

This serves two if you eat loads of salad like we do.

We had this last night with a chicken roast (another recipe I’ll share with you soon) and it was great!

Do let me know if you try it out and ask me for clarifications, if you need them.Β
