Herby Blue Cheese and Pear

Ingredients
4 ounces creamy blue cheese
2 teaspoons milk (if necessary)
24 Triscuit Rosemary & Olive Oil
24 whole almonds (about 1 ounce), toasted and coarsely chopped
1 large firm but ripe pear, cored, and sliced thinly into 24 slices

Directions
1. In a small bowl, stir the cheese with a wooden spoon until it is creamy and spreadable. If necessary, add the milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, to thin the mixture.

2. Spread about 1/4 teaspoon cheese onto each cracker, and top with a pear slice.

3. Sprinkle with almonds, and serve.


California Shrimp Topper

Ingredients

2 oz. KRAFT 2% Milk Cheddar Cheese, cut into 8 slices
16 TRISCUIT Crackers
8 thin avocado slices, cut in half
8 cooked cleaned medium shrimp, cut lengthwise in half
Your favorite salsa to taste

Directions
1. Cut cheese slices diagonally in half.

2. Top crackers with cheese and remaining ingredients.

Tips:
- The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. Shrimp size terminology varies from place to place, so the count is the most accurate way to call for shrimp in a recipe. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium and 36 to 45 is small.

- To devein raw shrimp, first remove the outer shell. Then make a lengthwise shallow cut on the outer curve of the shrimp to expose the black vein. Loosen the vein with the tip of a sharp knife, then pull with your fingers to remove.

1 pkg. (10 oz.) mixed salad greens
2 fresh pears, sliced
1 cup halved seedless red grapes

Tips
- Prepare using KRAFT Light Ranch Dressing and/or PLANTERS Walnut Halves.
- For a quick main-dish salad, toss greens with fruit and 2 pkg. (6 oz. each) OSCAR MAYER Deli Fresh Grilled Chicken Breast Strips. Add dressing; continue as directed.
- Substitute ATHENOS Traditional Crumbled Feta Cheese for the blue cheese and/or KRAFT Parmesan Romano Dressing for the ranch dressing.
