    Directions:

    1. 1
      Toss the pears and avacado in lemon juice-this keeps them from turning brown.

      Continue stirring gently until sugar has melted and caramelized the pecans.
    4. 4
      Carefully transfer nuts onto waxed paper.
    5. 5
      Allow to cool, and break into pieces.
    6. 6

      If you want to see your guests licking the bottom of the salad bowl, make this! People will sit around and talk about how good this is while they're fighting over what's left in the bowl. My friend Stephanie shared the recipe with me and it is possibly the best salad ever made. A great combination of sweet crunchy pecans, sweet pears, avocado and Roquefort cheese. Dressing is a wonderful compliment. Thanks, Little Bee, for posting!
