What a glamorous salad, yet the arrangement is really very simple.
Makes 4 servings.
1 can (8 ounces) pear halves
1 can (8 ounces) cling-peach slices
1 can (8 ounces) figs
1 can (8 ounces) Royal Anne cherries
1 jar (5 ounces) blue-cheese spread, well chilled
1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons syrup from fruits
1. Drain fruits; shape cheese spread into small balls. Chill all.
2. Line a serving plate with lettuce, building up centers lightly. Place 4 pear halves around center; fill pear hollows with cheese balls. Thread each of 4 kebab sticks with 2 peach slices, a fig and a cherry; stick into pears. Place remaining fruits around edge.
3. Blend remaining ingredients in a small bowl; serve separately.
