"Great salad you can serve on the side of a main dish or add roasted chicken and have as a meal! Chopped Belgian endive and radicchio can be substituted for the baby greens if you prefer a more exotic twist on salad recipes." — Lisawas

This is really good. I made it for Thanksgiving. I had rave reviews. I put the dressing on the whole salad and regretted it. If it is not eaten with in an hour or so it gets slimey. The flavor was excellent. Also a few previous reviewers mentioned that the dressing was to much and I'd like to say that you have to use balsamic vinegar and stone ground mustard. Balsamic vinegar is milder then other vinegars. That may be why others found the dressing to much.
The taste of the dressing was not what we expected. It was very strong. It over powered the sweet taste of the apples and cranberries.
I tweeked this somewhat. I didn't have pears so I omitted them. I didn't have blue cheese so I used feta cheese. It was a big success.
"Great salad!" was H's comment about this one (and I make a lot of great salads, so he's no sucker). The dressing IS strong, so you probably don't want all of it. If you're going to toss it as instructed, just use a small amount to start. I drizzled it over the salad and had it on the side for people to add more if they wanted. Fruit, balsamic and blue cheese is always big hit with me. Thanks for the recipe!
I couldn't wait to try your recipe since you said it was great. The dressing tasted very good, but the salad turned wilted before I could get it on the table (less than 3 minutes).
This is the perfect salad - I do make this from time to time, although I use a little less mustard and add some sugar or honey to the dressing.
Really enjoyed this salad. Great flavor and texture. Perfect light salad for summer. I used Feta instead of blue cheese and I might add a litte red onion next time around. But all in all really liked this and would make it again!
One of my favorite salads. LOVE the dressing. I used romaine cause that's what I had on hand, and omitted the apple cause it just didn't need it. The pear was plenty.
