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. Read More

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. Read More

Mom used to make a very similar recipe to this so I used this recipe and made it her way. She used pineapple juice and small chunks instead of cherries. Yum! Read More
