I found this recipe in one of those elementary school cookbooks that the PTA put together to raise money. It is a big hit every time I serve it. I don't use the salad dressing in this recipe - I use Ken's Italian dressing. I also usually use canned pears - because they are just the right ripeness. I also usually double the cheese amount since everyone always wants another piece.
