This simple side dish goes perfect with “heavier” meat, such as most game or minced beef dishes (e.g. meatballs/meat loaf etc).
It’s got a freshness to it, got great flavor, a bit of sourness, a bit of sweetness, and an awesome color!
It can be served both warm and cold, and for those of you that are familiar with lingonberry jam, this is a very good replacement for it I think.
• 1 Pear, shredded over the coarse side of a grater.
• 2 Red Onions, halved and thinly sliced.
• 1/2 cup (1 dl) Lingonberries, fresh or (unsweetened) frozen.
• 2 tbsp Olive Oil.
• Crushed Black Pepper, to taste.
In a small pot, heat up the olive oil and fry the onion over medium heat until softened and sweet.
Add the pear and lingonberries, and season with black pepper to your preference.
Serve warm or cold.
NOTE: If you can’t get lingonberries in your area, I would probably have tried substituting it with cranberries…
