Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Combine pears, nuts, crushed pepper, 1/4 cup parsley, 1/3 cup dressing and 1/4 tsp. cumin. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Mix remaining parsley, dressing, cumin and garlic until blended. Place roast in roasting pan or shallow baking dish; brush with dressing mixture.
Bake 1 hr. and 20 min. or until done (145 ºF). Remove roast from oven. Let stand 10 min. Slice half the roast; serve with half of the pear salsa. Cool remaining meat, then shred and refrigerate to use the next day (with the remaining salsa) to prepare Pork Tostadas with Pear Salsa (see Tip).
Pears will continue to ripen after they have been picked. Let them stand on the on the counter until they are ripe. If they ripen before you are ready to use them, store them in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Prepare using any other variety of fresh pears.
