The email I received from The Portly Dyke about this recipe came with the subject line of: "ZOMG! Delicious!".
asian pear slaw

2 celery ribs
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
1 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
2 firm Asian pears, cut into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks
2 scallions, thinly sliced diagonally
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh hot red chile, or to taste

Peel strings from celery with a Y-shaped vegetable peeler and cut celery into 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks.

Whisk together juice, vinegar, and ginger and stir in celery and remaining ingredients with salt and pepper to taste. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before serving.
(recipe here) PD noted: "[W]e had this salad tonight and it was OMFG! -- outrageously amazing. Complex flavors, absolutely satisfying, and one of those salads that I kept saying "I'll just have one more taste of this", as we hung around the table and talked once the feastery had abated."
