Asian pears

Quick idea No. 1: Cube peeled Asian pear and combine with watermelon and/or honeydew cubes. Sprinkle with feta cheese.

Quick idea No. 2: Peel and finely chop Asian pear and toss with rice wine vinegar and a pinch of sugar. Spread small toasts with cream cheese and a slice of smoked salmon. Top with Asian pear mixture and a sprig of dill.
