Oregon Pear Dessert Tray

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? After the Holidays: Oregon Pear Dessert Tray! Nothing says a light dessert like fruit, cheese, and nuts. Think about it. When you eat this combination before the meal, chances are you may overdo it simply because it’s all about timing. You certainly don’t intend to gorge yourself, yet conversation flows leading to munching without hesitation. Besides, everyone is doing it. Now fast-forward to the end of the meal. Your appetite has been sated and a little something would make it even more perfect. Ripe fruit that is naturally sweet blends well with a savory cheese and salty crunch of roasted nuts. Who knows? You may even find a sip of sherry or dessert wine to be the crowning touch of a great meal.
