Summer is the perfect time for asian pears. The fruit has a high water content and a crisp, grainy texture, noticeably different from more buttery European pear varieties. Combined with cucumber, a bit of fresh ginger, and a kick of jalapeno, this asian pear salad hits notes of sweet, spicy and earthy. Just the way to celebrate the end of summer.
