Ingredients
  • 1 ripe Anjou or Bosc pear

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Honey, for drizzling
  • 1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
Directions

1. Halve and core the pear, then cut into slices, leaving the stem-end intact and not cutting through to separate the slices. Squeeze the lemon juice over the cut side of the pear halves.
