Nippy Waldorf Salad

Sweet pear is the perfect match for sharp, tangy cheddar. Complex in texture and taste, but remarkably simple to make, just a mouthful will impress your guests.

  • Yields: 4 servings
  • Preparation: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125mL) GAY LEA - Regular Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup (50mL) green onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (50mL) fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp (10mL) honey
  • 1/4 tsp (1mL) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1mL) black pepper
  • 1 asian pear, chopped
  • 1 cup (250mL) seedless grapes, halved
  • 3/4 cup (175mL) celery, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup (175mL) IVANHOE - Old Sharpe Cheddar, crumbled and divided
  • 1/3 cup (75mL) walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • radicchio or boston lettuce leaves, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix sour cream, green onion, parsley, mustard, honey, salt and pepper; set aside. Toss pear with grapes, celery, 2 cups (125 mL) cheese and walnuts; stir in dressing.
  2. Line four serving bowls with radicchio or lettuce leaves (if using). Divide the salad mixture evenly between bowls.
  3. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; serve immediately.
  • The salad mixture can be made ahead and stored, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.
  • Reserve nuts separately; add just before serving to maintain their crunch.
  • Fill individual Belgian endive leaves with spoonfuls of salad mixture to serve as a hand-held appetizer.
  • Substitute 2 cups (500 mL) chopped crunchy apple for Asian pear.
