Nutritional values

The low acidity of pears makes them easy to digest, while their high content of soluble fiber has positive effects on the metabolism. The fiber binds cholesterol-containing bile acids in the intestines, helping to remove cholesterol from the blood.

If you are not a fan of blue cheese, you can replace it with a more mild cheese such as Brie or Camembert. We suggest this salad with fennel as a side to this dish.
