Recipe by Amanda G.

This is a wonderful, light dessert or side dish. Almost like pudding but with a nice tang. Always the first to go at potlucks!

This is one of those simple and easy dessert/salads that simply gives you a delightful surprise! This tastes elegant! The flavor is so nice that it tastes as if it were made with fresh perfectly ripe pears instead of canned. When you spoon it into your mouth it is so delightful you just want more and more. Light and fabulous!!! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
