Pear Salad (redneck style)
This is a classic country dish, and by country, I mean the spot where you park your double-wide trailer.
1 Can pear halves
Cheddar cheese (shredded)
Bust open a can and plate your pears (you can serve them on a bed of lettuce if you're feeling ritzy). Spoon a dollop of mayonnaise onto each pear half and then sprinkle with cheese. Voilà!
If it's a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding, or completion of terms of parole, adding a maraschino cherry atop each pear will make a nice touch.
If your trailer is actually a house, then you might want to upgrade your pear salad.
lettuce (not iceberg--never iceberg, ever)
3 Fresh pears
2 Tlbs Mayonnaise (or yogurt)
3/4 c. Crumbled blue cheese
3/4 c. Chopped walnuts
Dice pears and toss with mayonnaise then spoon onto lettuce. Sprinkle with blue cheese and walnuts. DO NOT add maraschino cherries, but raisins CAN be added, if desired.
