I got this salad from AllRecipes to make for special dinner for my family coming over. It is fabulous! It so pretty and the flavors are so different but compliment each other so well. Serve this to company or a special dinner and you won't be dissapointed. Everyone will love it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss the pears and avacado in lemon juice-this keeps them from turning brown.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, stir 1/4 cup of sugar together with the pecans.
  3. Continue stirring gently until sugar has melted and caramelized the pecans.
  4. Carefully transfer nuts onto waxed paper.
  5. Allow to cool, and break into pieces.
  6. For the dressing, blend oil, vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, mustard, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper.
  7. In a large serving bowl, layer lettuce, pears, blue cheese, avocado, and green onions.
  8. Pour dressing over salad, sprinkle with pecans, and serve.
