This salad is incredible! I made it exactly as called for and served it with Easter dinner - from the "Easter Dinner in the Dining Room" menu. Since I made it for 27 people and served it buffet style - I layered the ingredients in a large crystal salad bowl - greens, pears, strawberries, pecans, then crumbled blue cheese - and had the dressing on the side for each person to drizzle on as they served themselves. It was a beautiful preparation, everyone loved it and many asked for the recipe. This is perfect for special occasions, but my husband and I will make it often as well, since it doesn't require involved preparations or rare ingredients. Definitely a keeper!

This was the first time I've made this recipe! I am a big fan of interesting salads and this one does not disappoint! The flavors of the cheese and fruit blend nicely. I actually used toasted almond slivers in lieu of the pecas (for convenience)! My one recommendation is to prepare the dressing ahead of time to allow the ingredients to meld. The taste seemed a bit sharp however after resting overnight it was a very nice match with the salad! I am looking forward to making this again!
