Spinach and Pear Salad
3 Cups fresh spinach leaves, torn into bite-size pieces
2 pretty leaves butter or romaine lettuce
1 medium comice (or anything in season) pear, peeled, cored and cut in 1/2 inch dice
1/3 Cup pomegranate seeds
1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, or less if you can afford good balsamic (or raspberry red wine vin, vegan red wine vin., as you like)
To assemble salad, toss diced pear with pepper and 1 Tbsp of the vinegar. Place one lettuce leaf on each serving plate. Divide the spinach between the two plates and sprinkle with remaining vinegar, to taste. Distribute diced pear over the spinach, toss pomegranate seeds over the salads and serve.
