Salad fantastique! ---OMG!

I had the pleasure of eating a wonderful salad last week at my web designer’s house and I thought I would vary it because I didn’t have some ingredients.
Take some iceberg lettuce and roughly rip it up so it remains chunky (just like me). Then mix in a bowl some (I used three) small, cooked, but just warm Kumara (sweet potatoes), also nicely chopped into cubes. I then peeled some pears, in this case they were imported USA ones---lovely---so are NZ ones. Mix the pears and Kumaras with low fat mayonnaise—use your fingers. I am not boasting but I happened to have some chervil growing in a container on my deck so I ripped that up too and mixed it in with the pears and kumara. Just add some pepper and place the mixture on top of the lettuce on a flat dish or platter.
I served this with pork spare ribs cooked with a spicy mixture on the slow cooker.  Damn, if my partner doesn’t come home soon--- well you know what will happen! Of course I tasted it, silly!  YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMY!!!!!
