A Drunken Pear

Now I’m not one to typically pick up a pear and chomp, but when they are sliced in salads or better yet in a cocktail, I’m more than willing to participate in their consumption.  Pears have no cholesterol, sodium or saturated fat.  In addition, they are high in fiber, Vitamin C and potassium.   So drink up!
