      This was great! It had all the right flavors and they went together very great!! I omitted baking the pears because I didn't have much time to prepare the salad, but I imagine it would be great as well. The only addition I made was adding a little dijoin mustard to the dressing because the olive oil I used was to overpowering. Thanks for posting this recipe Chef Decadent1!!

      Oh, my!!!! Your taste buds will get a real treat with this salad. I love love love it! Added some rotisserie chicken and didn't bake the pears, just cubed. Wonderful flavors and the balsamic dressing enhances the sweetness of the fruits and blue cheese. Not a crumb was left!
