So many great reviews, but this salad was a total and utter bomb for me. I messed up every aspect of it. I mixed the salad ingredients with the only change of using some dried chives instead of green onions. Within 10 minutes I had salad mush. The saltiness from the cheese completely broke down my lettuce. The pears were on the very soft side and that just helped to do that I think. I would highly recommend making all of the components and assembling them on the individual plates. Then, I followed the instructions for the pecans and the sugar did not stick. I had giant clumps of hardened sugar with lightly coated pecans. I have so many oven baked glazed nut recipes that are wonderful. I had never tried this method before. Needless to say after the salad turned to mush and the pecans did not turn out, I didn't bother with the dressing as I had nothing to put it on. I consider myself a pretty advanced cook. Maybe, just too many components here? it's definitely more of a fancy salad and not what I would consider a large one bowl family salad as the directions suggest. I will be greatful if any of this gets eaten at this point.
