    Merlot's Note:

    This is a lovely cheese spread. The pears and walnuts give it a nice contrast. I have also used almond slices when I was out of walnuts.

      This was very yummy! I made a few changes because I was making a large amount to bring to a reception. I made the pears chunkier, about 3/4-inch pieces, used pecans instead of walnuts (only because I realized too late that I didn't have walnuts!), and used a mixture of 1/2 crumbled gorgonzola with 1/2 crumbled feta. I am serving it tonight at a reception as a side salad. Then I needed to make myself some lunch, so I took a little of the mix and put it on a plate of mixed baby greens and tossed it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar -- DIVINE!! What a fabulous combination. I will definitely make this again. I think next time I will try the finer dice size to make this a spread, but as a chunky salad it was also delicious. Thanks, Merlot!

      My pears were VERY juicey which may have effected end product which was tastey enough but rather loose. Not really a spread- more like a dip. Served with toasts.

      This stuff is addictive! I made it with average quality stuff to try it out on friends but will definitely use my Stilton or Maytag next time. I served it with whole wheat low sodium Tricuits.
