Enjoy Fresh Pears At Any Meal (NAPSA) - The next time you're looking for a new dinner idea, try pears. There are many tasty varieties to enjoy throughout the year, including Bartlett, Anjou, Bosc and Comice, each with a distinct texture and flavor that can be made into savory snacks, main dishes, appetizers and salads as well as luscious sweet desserts.
Besides adding flavor, pears are nutritious. They are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber, with only about 100 calories per serving. Include pears as one of your "5 to 9 a day" recommended servings of fruits and vegetables anytime of the day.
For a delicious main dish idea, try this recipe using USA pears:
Core and slice pears; place in lemon-water solution to prevent browning. Set aside.
Boil water in medium saucepan; add pork, onion and garlic. Cook until done, about 20 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Combine dressing ingredients; salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Brown tortillas in a little oil until golden and crisp; drain and cool. Shred cooked meat; mix with carrots, red onion and chives.
