Offer this colorful salad during the fall and winter when pears are in season and fresh walnuts are abundant. For this get together, double the recipe.
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss gently. Spoon onto plates and sprinkle evenly with walnuts.
Variation: For a fun Halloween embellishment, add "Dracula's Teeth" to this salad by garnishing plated salads with a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.
