Pear Parsley Salad Dressing

I have a huge parsley plant in our backyard that came back from last year and so have been looking for ways to utilize this super nutritious green herb in different dishes.  I came up with this Pear Parsley Dressing which my family enjoyed quite a bit.  The inspiration for this delicious gluten-free dressing came from the lovely Daniela of Daniela’s Kitchen.

While she served her Pear Dressing over arugula and fennel, I chose to serve mine over a bed of mixed greens.  Either way, healthy, delicious and delightful.  I think this dressing is especially good for entertaining as it’s so tasty and has somewhat unexpected, yet elegant flavors.

Pear Parsley Dressing
  • 1 pear, cored and chopped (not peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  1. In a vitamix, process pear, olive oil and water on high until smooth
  2. Blend in parsley, garlic and salt
  3. Serve over tossed greens

I want to take a moment to thank everyone for the outpouring of support I received in response to this post.  I really appreciate your thoughtful responses and care!
