How to Cook Pears with Blue Cheese Dressing
- Peel the pears, keeping the stalks on. Carefully remove the cores from the larger end of the pear, using a small teaspoon. Be sure to keep the pear intact. Brush the pears with lemon juice to avoid discolouration. Cream the cheese until soft and use about 1oz (25g) to stuff each pear. Add the yoghurt to the remaining cheese and blend them well together. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
- Shred the lettuce leaves and spread them on four plates. Stand a pear on each bed of lettuce and carefully coat with the cheese and yoghurt mix. Garnish the top of each pear (the stalk) with small mint leaves.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you have an 'old fashioned' potato peeling knife (knife shape as opposed to wide, flat blade) you will find this is better to begin removing the pear cores. You can use a teaspoon once you 'get inside'

Prepared this for a guest with a sophisticated palate and got rave reviews. Everyone loved it...even my picky eater husband! I have made it again since, and it is so delicious! This is now my absolute favorite dessert. We had it again last night and I want it every weekend now. It was a hit. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
