I made this salad this evening for myself, my husband, and adult son for dinner. It was absolutely delicious!! My son ate 3 servings of this salad and my husband and I ate 2 servings!! The combination of flavors is perfection!! Use any kind of leafy green you have on hand and it will work wonderfully!! I used a bag of romaine lettuce.
I substituted crumbled feta cheese for blue cheese because that is what I had on hand. I also substituted diced shallot for the onion/garlic because that is what I had on hand. Along with others I think the dressing needs to be doubled (all but the olive oil-keep it at 1/3 cup). I used Dijon mustard which was delicious!! The candied pecans add so much textural flavor along with the sweet pear!! I added a handful of dried cranberries to my personal salad bowl and it was decish!! My husband and son raved over this salad!! And it is healthy too as well as yummy!!
Highly recommend! Thank you for submitting this wonderful recipe!! I will be making it again often in the future!!
