Pear Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing
Fresh, sliced pears topped with tangy blue cheese dressing and toasted slivered almonds.
Servings 2 servings
- 2 fresh pears core removed, sliced
- ½ cup slivered almonds
- 2 oz. crumbled blue cheese
For the dressing:
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup low-fat sour cream
- 1 tblsp. lemon juice
- 1-2 oz. blue cheese crumbled
- 1-2 tblsp. milk or cream
- Salt and pepper
Make the dressing – combine the yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice, blue cheese, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Stir until well combined. Add enough milk or cream to create the consistency you like. Set aside.
Toast the almonds – Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Check after about 6 minutes and watch closely to prevent burning. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
For each serving, place a sliced pear atop a lettuce-lined salad plate. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and additional crumbled blue cheese.
