Cheddar & Parmesan Pear Dip

Whip up this healthy appetizer for your next holiday party

5 fresh pears
Orange juice to cover pears
¼ c. cheddar and Parmesan salad dressing
¼ c. fat-free sour cream
2 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish
½ tsp. ground tarragon

Cut pears in half and remove core. Cut each half into four slices. Place sliced pears in a bowl and cover with orange juice. Let sit for 5 minutes then remove pears from juice. This will help to keep the pears from turning brown. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Transfer dip into a small serving bowl.

Put serving bowl in the center of a large plate and surround with pear slices. Serves 5.
