Directions

  1. Snap off and discard woody bases from asparagus. If desired, scrape off scales. In a large saucepan cook asparagus, covered, in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 3 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, brush cut sides of pears with lemon juice; set aside. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Place chicken on the grill rack directly over medium heat; grill for 5 minutes. Turn chicken. Add pears to the grill rack, cut sides down. Grill chicken and pears for 7 to 10 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F) and pears are tender. If desired, add asparagus the last 3 minutes of grilling.
  4. Transfer chicken to a cutting board; slice chicken. Cut pear halves in half, forming 8 quarters.
  5. On 4 dinner plates, arrange greens, chicken, and asparagus. If desired, stir milk into Blue Cheese Dressing to reach desired consistency. Spoon dressing over salad. Add pear pieces. Makes 4 servings.
