Sweet Stuffed Pear Salad — #recipes
This won’t sound good. I didn’t think it sounded good either when my Facebook friend, Gwen Studyvin told me about it this past week. I met Gwen for the first time, face to face, (we have SO many things in common!) and she told me about this very simple recipe. Because she raved about it, I tried it the very day I met her. Delicious!
Sweet Stuffed Pears — FoodBuddyKs.com
Like I said this is one of those simple and simply delicious items that are easily overlooked because when you first hear, view or read the recipe, it does not sound like the ingredients go together. The surprise is wonderful when it turns out to be good enough to serve to guests.
Just three ingredients —
01 – One Can Pear Halves
02 – Hellmans Mayonnaise
03 – Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
01 — Drain the pears and arrange on a plate or platter.
02 — Stuff each pear with about a teaspoon (or less) of Hellman’s mayonnaise.
03 — Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top.
I put two of these on my plate but went back for another one!
Russ had three on his plate, but he managed to eat all the rest of the pears in this one meal!
REALLY good – give it a try — it’s great food.
