I have a huge parsley plant in our backyard that came back from last year and so have been looking for ways to utilize this super nutritious green herb in different dishes. I came up with this Pear Parsley Dressing which my family enjoyed quite a bit. The inspiration for this delicious gluten-free dressing came from the lovely Daniela of Daniela’s Kitchen.
While she served her Pear Dressing over arugula and fennel, I chose to serve mine over a bed of mixed greens. Either way, healthy, delicious and delightful. I think this dressing is especially good for entertaining as it’s so tasty and has somewhat unexpected, yet elegant flavors.
1 pear, cored and chopped (not peeled)
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup water
1 cup parsley, roughly chopped
3 cloves garlic, pressed
¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- In a vitamix, process pear, olive oil and water on high until smooth
- Blend in parsley, garlic and salt
- Serve over tossed greens
I want to take a moment to thank everyone for the outpouring of support I received in response to this post. I really appreciate your thoughtful responses and care!
