Pear Salad With O'Henry's Dressing
|Shredded lettuce||6 Cup (96 tbs)|
|Sour cream||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Crumbled blue cheese||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
Cut 6 ripe pears, chilled, in quarters.
Core and cut each quarter in half lengthwise.
On 6 individual salad plates, arrange 1 cup shredded lettuce and 8 pear slices.
To 1 cup sour cream, add 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese and mix well.
Place a dollop of dressing on each salad and sprinkle lightly with a grating of fresh nutmeg.
Bottled blue cheese dressing may be substituted for the sour cream and crumbled blue cheese, if you wish.
O'Henry's dressing, by the way, is simply blue cheese crumbled into sour cream.
