Sesame Pear Vinaigrette

I love this salad dressing and, unfortunately, didn't get a photo of it after it went onto the salad! Rushing around to serve 50 guests, I totally space getting the final shot. Oh well, use your imaginations. Fresh, very ripe pears are peeled and processed in the Cuinsart. Sweetened rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame seed oil, orange juice and olive oil round out the flavors. This is great on any type of green salad. Apparently, if might be good on latkes. I delivered a 'to go' type of dinner for a board meeting around Chanukah. The next day, it was mentioned that I had forgotten the salad dressing. No way, I made the delivery myself! I had placed it next to the bowl of salad, perhaps too close to the chafer of latkes!
