Christmas Day 2010

Our family holiday celebrations have dwindled, not the number of holidays, but the number of people. First we lost Carrie and the Koehmstedts to North Carolina; then my Mom to Oregon; so we are down to 4. This year one of Sharon's friends, Kimberly, invited we 4 to her Christmas dinner. Sharon specifically requested I bring this salad, so I thought I'd share the recipe. I'm also bringing my Corn Casserole. Kimberly's mother-in-law, who lives with her, is making homemade tamales. Can't wait!

Last night Sharon and Oden had a sleep-over, here. We've had a great morning.

1 Bartlett pear, thinly sliced
2 bags of Triple Heart Salad greens

  1. Thanks for the recipe Jan. Right up my alley. Where do you find pear vinegar? Or, do you season your own? I need to try that one soon. I swear I need to be on a water-only diet for a month.
