Iced Cheese and Pear Salad - 1960's

Mad Men themed party? Perfect party dish.

3 level tablespoons
1 red pepper (chopped)
4 oz crumbled Cheshire cheese
One eighth pint of double cream
2 large pears
4 lettuce leaves
Sprigs of watercress

1. Either turn up your refrigerator up to maximum or make sure you have access to a clear freezer.
2. Mix mayo with the Cheshire cheese, chopped red pepper, double cream and spread in an ice tray.
3. Place in a freezing compartment/refrigerator and stir every 30 minutes until mixture is frozen which should take 1 - 1.5 hours.
4. Wipe pears (peel if skins are tough) and cut in half and remove core.  Place each half pear on a lettuce leaf, pile iced cheese mixture on pear and garnish with watercress sprigs. Serve immediately.
