1 cup pecan halves
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
16 cups torn curly endive (chicory), romaine lettuce, or spinach
3 ripe pears, cored and thinly sliced

The Kulich is a traditional Easter cake. Sometimes thought of as a bread owing the method by which it's made, it's much more of a cake than a bread but it can be viewed either way. Kulich is made mainly for Orthodox Easter celebrations and usually consists of a mixture of dried and candied fruits and spices, shaped like a tower. There are many variations on the recipe for the kulich; this recipe is the most common, classical one.
