  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Toss cheese with 1 tsp. of the dressing in small bowl. Place in small resealable plastic bag. Add peanuts; seal bag. Shake to evenly coat cheese with the peanuts; place on ungreased baking sheet. Reserve any remaining peanuts in bag.
  • Bake 7 to 8 min. or until cheese is slightly softened. Meanwhile, toss greens with remaining dressing and reserved peanuts. Divide evenly between two salad plates.
  • Arrange four pear slices on each salad; top with one of the warm cheese wedges.

Serving Suggestion

Serve this salad as an accompaniment to a serving of grilled fish, lean meat or poultry.

Substitute

Prepare as directed, substituting Brie cheese for the Camembert cheese.

How to Store Cheese

The best temperature to store cheese at is about 40°F. Once the original package has been opened, wrap cheese in foil, plastic wrap or a damp towel to prevent cheese from drying out. Blue cheeses are best stored wrapped in foil. If your refrigerator has a special drawer for storing cheese, be sure to use it. Check cheese in the refrigerator regularly for freshness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this salad to go along with scallops for a Valentine's Dinner. Made this salad to go along with scallops for a Valentine's Dinner. My husband loved it - something different from the usual salad. He did feel it needed more salad dressing which he added. I will definitely make it again. I did use the fat free Kraft Honey Dijon Dressing and will probably try a more low calorie cheese next time. It would make a great lunch salad (makes a lot).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice combination of flavors. Nice combination of flavors. I used crushed macadamias instead of peanuts, and they seemed to be a perfect complement to the soft, juicy pears, smooth, piquant cheese, and crisp, fresh lettuce. My only complaint is that it is hard to eat with sliced pears, I would cube the pears next time. Went great with seared ahi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This salad was awesome! This salad was awesome!!! The pears were a nice subtle sweetness that did not overpower the salad. My bf and I loved this. However I could not find any cambert cheese so I used mozerella instead. Turned out great! I'll make this forever now!!! Thanks food and family!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yum! Yum! I LOVE camembert and pears on salad. My variation was to use a raspberry/walnut vinagrette to coat the cheese and crust it with walnuts instead of peanuts. It's delicious as is, or make it a main dish by adding a piece of broiled chicken or fish.

This was very good, I made it for my husband for Valentine's Day and he really enjoyed it as a starter dish. I changed the peanuts to pecans and I used a No-fat fig and balsamic vinegar dressing instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was great! This was great! Very simple and a big hit. I used Brea and cashews instead but I am sure it would be great both ways.
