Pear and Pistachio Guacamole

Perfect for autumn or winter when the petite seckel pears are in season. But you can use any favorite pear. It has a surprising crunch, creating a delicious new version of guacamole. The pistachios on top make it extra special and contrast so nicely with the pear and avocado.
