Vertical Pear Salad | Genius and Beautiful

V E R T I C A L - P E A R - S A L A D
4 smooth skinned pears
2-3 cups watercress
1/2 cup toasted pecans
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
vinaigrette dressing
honey for drizzling
lemon juice

Cut pears horizontally into 3 or 4 slices depending on the size of your pears. Use a paring knife to cut out the cores. The pieces should look like O's. Leave the stem on the pop piece. Brush slices of pear with lemon juice to keep it from browning.

Toss watercress, pecans, and blue cheese with dressing until coated.

Reassemble the pear, vertically, with the watercress salad in between each slice. Once assembled, drizzle with honey, and serve!

It does look good and very pretty. My only question on food done up like this is how exactly do you eat it? I'd have to take it apart to do so and that would seem to ruin it all.

It is! I have also used lettuce or spinach and feta cheese for friends who don't care for blue cheese like we do. Have a yummy weekend! Cathy in Idaho
