    Elly in Canada's Note:

    If you love blue cheese, you will enjoy this quick and easy salad. The salad is topped with a creamy dressing and additional crumbled blue cheese. I have used pears and/or apples to make this salad, walnut and pecans both equally good.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whisk together in a small bowl, half the blue cheese with the cream cheese and milk until well combined. If you find the dressing too thick add a little more milk. May be made ahead and refrigerated. (If you buy the crumbled blue cheese you will need a 175g package).
    2. 2
      Place 1 cup of the mesclun mix on individual salad plates.
    3. 3
      Cut pears in half, remove core and cut into wedges.
    4. 4
      Arrange pears on top of greens.
    5. 5
      Drizzle dressing over pears. Top with remaining blue cheese, nuts and pepper.

      This is a wonderful, refreshing salad. I used an Asian pear and bottled blue cheese dressing (had it on hand). I enjoyed this with toasted walnuts as garnish. It was pleasing to the eye and sensational to the tongue. Thanks Elly.

      The classic pear/blue cheese combo is hard to beat. I used both green Anjou and red Bartlett pears for a little contrast, a mix of mesclun and baby spinach, and walnuts. Thanks for posting!
