Peppered Pear and Spinach Salad

This great recipe is from Divine Feasts Highlands Style, a fund raising cookbook from The Church of the Incarnation in Highlands, NC, a divine village that my family and I visit at least once a year in the cool, lush, green Blue Ridge  Mountains of south eastern North Carolina.

Juice 2 lemons


2 large good quality croutons

1 Cup toasted pecans

3/4 freshly coarse grated Parmesan cheese
