    EmJoMay's Note:

    This is one of my favorites. My aunt served roasted pear and walnut salad at her wedding, and this is my version of it. It looks and sounds fancy, even though it's pretty simple, so I whip it out at parties every once in a while. I also like to sprinkle mozzarella over the top.
