The flavors go together beautifully! I eat this salad just about every day, but I usually add turkey and skip the pear and the dressing. Basically, anything with nuts and raisins together gets an A from me. :)
EXCELLENT and it has all the items I love in a salad. The flavors blend well and make a very filling salad. Prepared as a participant in the Jan 2009 Lite and Low Fat Event held in the Cooking Photos Forum.
This was SO good! It tastes like a salad that should be on a restaurant menu! I used half of a rather large apple-pear, sugar-free raspberry vinegrette, and I used raisins. This is such a great change from a normal garden salad, and a definite repeat. Thanks for posting it!
I made this without the cottage cheese, and it was great. All the flavors complimented each other well.
