EASY COTTAGE CHEESE PEAR SALAD
Years ago when I worked in New York City I was in a group from Texas that met one evening a week to share dinner. My NYC apartment had a kitchen smaller that most people's bathrooms so preparing food was a challenge. One evening after a long day at work at stopped at the market on the way home. I grabbed a can of pear halves, some leafy lettuce and a carton of cottage cheese. I made the following and it was such a hit it became something I was expected to bring.
Wash lettuce leaves and pat dry with a paper towel.
Place each pear half, cut side up, on a lettuce leaf. Scoop some cottage cheese into the center of each pear.
Sprinkle lightly with a touch of ground cinnamon. Easy and tasty.
Note: File Photo - it is so easy to turn these canned pears into a simple salad.
