Deli chicken salad garners rave reviews when served on a fan of fresh pear slices and garnished with almonds and blue cheese.

Ingredients

4
lettuce leaves, if desired
2
ripe medium pears, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
8
oz. (1 cup) creamy chicken salad (from deli)
1
oz. (1/4 cup) crumbled blue cheese
2
tablespoons chopped smoked almonds

Directions

  • 1 Line individual serving plates with lettuce. Arrange pear slices in fan shape over lettuce on each plate.
  • 2 Spoon 1/2 cup chicken salad onto bottom half of each pear fan. Sprinkle with cheese and almonds.
Tips  

Any chopped toasted nuts can be used in place of the almonds. Walnuts or pecans are especially good partners for the pears and blue cheese. Drained canned pears can be used in place of the fresh.

This recipe makes a nice light lunch or dinner entrée. Serve it with seasoned breadsticks for a simple summer meal.
