Under-the-Sea Salad

1 can (16 ounces) pear halves in syrup, undrained
1 package (4-serving size) JELL-O Brand Gelatin, Lime Flavor
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 package (8 ounces) Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Salad greens (optional)
Seedless red grapes (optional)

Drain pears, reserving 1/2 cup syrup. Dice pears. Set aside.
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add reserved syrup, cold
water and lemon juice. Measure 1 1/4 cups gelatin into 8x4-inch
loaf pan. Chill until set but not firm. Place cream cheese
in blender. Cover. Blend at low speed until smooth and creamy.
Very slowly add remaining gelatin and ginger. Blend at low speed
until smooth, about 15 seconds. Chill until thickened. Fold
in pears. Spoon over gelatin in pan. Chill until firm, about
2 hours. Unmold. Garnish with crisp salad greens, additional
pears and grapes, if desired.
