As an ode to one of our favorite fruits, we personalized a version of the classic Waldorf salad by using sweet seasonal pears. With so many pear varieties to choose from, it’s always such a treat to welcome the autumn season by having a pear-centric salad. For glorious color, use red Anjou or Seckel pears for their beautiful skins. The wonderful balance of crunchy celery, sweet grapes, chewy raisins, and crisp pears is harmony in a bowl. Asian pears are also a great addition to this salad because of their crisp, juicy flesh. You can personalize this salad further with your own favorite pear variety.
