I also picked up a bushel of Earthbound Farms' fresh herb salad mix and some goat cheese and then I noticed that blueberries were 2 pints for $5 so I jumped on that too. If you like raspberries, blackberries, and/or blueberries, Fresh Market usually has them on deal at 2/$5. So, if they aren't that price on your particular visit and you don't mind waiting check back the next week they likely will be.
Tonight I sliced up 1/2 of the Asian pear to make a salad for dinner. This thing was so big that I only needed to slice up 1/2 of it.
Then I filled a bowl with the fresh herb salad mix, added the pear, blueberries, and goat cheese and tossed with a tiny amount of olive oil and this pinot noir vinegar I'd received at a Slow Food Miami dinner.
The end result was a winner. I liked the sweetness of the pear against the slightly tart blueberries and the acidity of the red wine vinegar. The goat cheese balanced everything out nicely. I suppose you could also add grilled chicken to make this a more hearty salad too. If you've never tried one of these pears, give it a shot. They are great in a salad and I also like to use them with brie and turkey in a sandwich. Or you could just eat them like an apple. Regardless of how you use them, you can find these giant Asian pears at the Fresh Market in Coconut Grove.
