Get Fresh with USA Pears!

Here in Portland, the sun is finally starting to shine. I’m seeing signs of spring at my local grocer—fresh asparagus, strawberries, and salad greens—and in my yard. Tulips! Who knew?!

Thanks to advanced storage techniques, fresh pears are in season through the spring, too, and they’re a great complement to other fresh produce in salsas, salads, and shish kabobs.

Check out the following recipes for some fresh ins-pear-ation:

Crostini with Feta and Pear-Strawberry Salsa

Pear and Spinach Salad with Parmesan Vinaigrette

Spicy Fish Tacos with Pear Mango Salsa

Pear Kabobs with Strawberry Dipping Sauce
