Ingredients

  • 2 fresh pears core removed, sliced
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • Lettuce
  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
