I really liked this recipe but my family isn't big cheddar fans so I used crumbled Bleu Cheese. That was a real hit. Another friend doesn't like cherries, so I used green grapes and for the juice ?? of course a splash of white wine !! Serving my brothers and a few friends, I doubled everything. They would have laughed at a single pear half.

This was a fast easy little salad to put together. I used grenadine syrup instead of cherry juice and a cinnamon candy for the top since I was out of maraschino cherries. I didn't care much for the mayo taste though so I'd skip it next time, but that's a personal thing, I really don't like mayo anyway. I used fresh pears instead of canned. This is a really pretty dish as well. Thanks.

This was a nice light addition to a luncheon. It was tasty and had a pretty presentation.
