  1. In a medium bowl, combine carrots, pecans, raisins and enough French dressing to moisten. Mix lightly and chill.
  2. Drain pears, reserving 2 tablespoons syrup. In a small bowl, combine reserved syrup, dates and softened cream cheese and mix until well blended.
  3. Fill each pear half with cream cheese mixture. Spoon the carrot mixture onto 6 salad plates covered with lettuce leaves and place one pear half on each plate.

This is a very smooth and elegant palate pleaser, indeed. I made two slight changes: chopped walnuts and golden raisins. The date and cream cheese mixture with the pear halves is a combination that will leave your taste buds screaming for more. Definitely a five star recipe that I'll be making time and time again.



Prepared this for a dinner party last night and it received RAVE reviews. I used red leaf lettuce for GREAT eye appeal and I used 1/2 of the amount of French Dressing called for and substituted real mayonnaise for the other half ... helps to cut the "tangy" taste of the French dressing. Thanks, Allana for sharing!



THIS WAS A TOTAL HIT at my lunch bunch group. Tasty, and easy to make, I willmake it a lot more often, especially for company!!
