"This is the best salad I've ever eaten. It's tangy from the blue cheese, fruity from the pears, and crunchy from the caramelized pecans."
Dish up a little nostalgia with this old-fashioned Jell-O® salad—just like Grandma used to make.

Recipe of the Day
I make this salad all year long, but it is especially great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just freeze a few bags of cranberries to use at a later date. I know this will become a tradition to anyone who tries it, it's delicious! Garnish with frosted cranberries and mint leaves, if desired. For frosted cranberries, wet cranberries with water, and roll in sugar.
