  • Beat first 4 ingredients in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Stir in morsels and zest.
  • Cut small piece from round side of each pear half so pear lies flat. Brush outside of pears with juice. Place each pear half on serving plate.
  • Spoon ricotta mixture evenly onto tops of pears. Sprinkle with nuts.

Best Pears for Salads

The best varieties of pears for salads are Bartlett, Anjou, Bosc and Comice. Make sure the pears are perfectly ripe to ensure a sweet flavor and juicy texture.

How to Ripen Pears

Pears do not ripen well on the tree, so they are picked when mature, but not yet ripe. To ripen fresh pears at home, place them in a paper bag, fold over the top and store at room temperature for 1 to 3 days. To test for ripeness, apply gentle thumb pressure at the base of the stem. If the fruit yields slightly, the pear is ripe. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Purchasing Pears

Look for pears with a fragrant aroma and coloring characteristic of their variety. Skins should be free from cuts and bruises. A ripe pear is one that feels slightly firm, but gives a bit to gentle pressure at the stem end.
