Sweet pears and rich blue cheese combine together for an elegant salad. Topped with balsamic vinegar dressing this is bound to get rave reviews alongside any meal or on its own! Another great recipe from Taste of home.

This recipe was a disgrace. Mistakes in the writing and the measurements did not add up. Too much of one thing, not enough of others. Not nearly enough dressing for two salads let alone 4. Think someone needs to test these out before printing. A very disappointing start to our Valentine's Day dinner.
