I didn't think the Asian pear blended well with the rest of the salad, and the dressing is not as balanced as many other choices. I won't make this one again.

This salad is very similar to one I have been making for years but I DO like the extra bite (cayenne) in the dressing in this one. I made the dressing a couple hours beforehand and let it chill in the fridge. I omitted the apples but threw in some dried cranberries. I used Feta cheese as I had no goat cheese but I think I personally prefer the gorgonzola which is what I've used in the past. This is a great salad for winter months when fresh produce is minimal. This is a lovely salad for company.

I have made this salad several times and the dressing is what makes it stand out. The family loves it, friends always ask for the recipe. Bravo for something light and refreshing.

The whole family loved this. Even my picky sister and my even pickier niece ate goat cheese! I will definitely use this recipe again.

The salad in and of itself is OK. I did not like the dressing. It had no taste and was flat. I will not make again.
