♥Pear Bacon Salad with Raspberry Cream Dressing♥

I love this salad. I love to make it - chopping and tearing and grating its ingredients. There's just something about puttering around in the kitchen during the cold, winter months that is comforting to me. This salad is not only pretty to look at - it is absolutely delicious!


3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup raspberry preserves
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon Dijon mustard
4 firm, ripe pears
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 head Bibb lettuce, torn
1 small head romaine lettuce, torn
1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup fresh raspberries


Whisk together first 4 ingredients. Set dressing aside. Peel pears, if desired; quarter pears. Brush with lemon juice. Arrange lettuce on 4 plates. Arrange pear quarters over lettuce. Drizzle with dressing; sprinkle with cheese, bacon, and raspberries.
