Expert 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.
