I changed the recipe quite a bit, but loved it still. The dressing, for which I used plain yoghurt instead of mayo and grapeseed oil instead of walnut oil, was fabulous. It was a little sweet so I would perhaps cut back (just a little!) the amounts of maple syrup and sugar next time. For the salad I tossed romaine lettuce with red onion, blackberries and bleu cheese crumbles. The berries offered a nice texture contrast that I'm not sure the pears, unless diced, could have. We decided to put this in a bread bowl because we were missing Perkin's discontinued bread bowl salad, and I have to say this was superb that way. The dressing still had a little tang to it on the breadbowl and was great. It was all very quick too, I'd easily recommend this as a last minute dinner.
