Recipe: Pear and Cheese Salad

If other fruits are not in supply for use in SALAD and pears can be obtained, they may be utilized with CREAM cheese in a pleasing way..

(Sufficient to Serve Four)

  •  2 Tb. CREAM
  •  Lettuce
  •  1/4 tsp. salt
  •  4 halves English walnuts
  •  1 pkg. CREAM cheese
  •  SALAD Dressing
  •  8 halves canned pears

Mix the CREAM and salt with the cheese and shape into balls. Place one-half of a pear with the hollow side up on a SALAD plate garnished with a lettuce leaf and the other half with the hollow side down beside it. Put a ball of the cheese in the hollow of the upturned half and press half an English walnut on top of that. Add the Dressing and serve. French Dressing is recommended for this SALAD, but some other SALAD Dressing will answer.
