About 9 years ago, I had eaten a pear salad for the first time in one of the restaurants in US and ever since then making a pear salad has been on my to-do list. My husband and I had enjoyed it so much that we actually had gone behind the doors to talk to the chef about his creation. My recipe is nowhere close to his creation but making it and relishing it took me back in time. My recipe ticks all the essentials of a salad; its creamy, has loads of different texture, quick and best of all healthy especially with my updated 4 ingredient blueberry dressing with no oil or a sweetener.

And here are some substitutions as always:

  1. In case you can’t find creamy ricotta, use my cheat’s ricotta with paneer.
  2. No need to rush to a store to get a peach jam either. Strawberry jam or apricot jam or an orange marmalade would work brilliantly with the dressing.
  3. Update: I recently did a short video on my Instagram and Facebook account #acookwithin with a 4 ingredient blueberry dressing with no oil or a sweetener and it got a great response! I love to play around with the recipe so using the same ingredients, I made a super quick blueberry dressing that I have also updated in the notes below for a quick reference.
  4. Walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds is also a great substitute for sunflower seeds.
