I had a very similar salad a few nights ago and it called to make your own caramelized pecans. I did 1 cup of pecans, 1/4 cup of white sugar and 1.5 tbsp of water. You mix it in a pot until it's caramelized. They turned out AMAZING! But I was thinking next time I'd try maybe adding a little brown sugar and cinnamon. You could also try adding some honey that is a little watered down. Anyway, I use pink lady apples instead of pears and gorgonzola instead of blue cheese. Pink ladies are the best type of apple, i use them in salads and sandwiches all the time. they aren't tart like other apples. anyway, great recipe!
