    WiGal's Note:

    I developed this to go along with Blueberry Pomegranate Infused Red Wine Vinegar. Remember that pears ripen from the inside out, the best way to check for ripeness is to "check the neck for ripeness". To do this, gently press near the stem with your thumb. When it gives to gentle pressure it is ripe, juicy and ready to eat. If you wait until the pear is soft around the middle chances are it will be overripe. I have also used Walnut Oil instead of olive oil, and subbed in goat cheese or bleu cheese -all of them are good! Radicchio is bitter so be careful that you are using just a smidgeon of it. The cooking time is the resting time in the refrigerator.

      Super fun salad. I had some fun with it, so here we go. I was out of pears (there is no doubt they would be fab in here) so added red seedless grapes (which were awesome) and fresh peaches (not so great in here). Then I put feta on half of the salad and blue cheese on the other half. LOVED the blue cheese side. Don't forget the craisins, as I felt they truly made the salad special. This is definitely fancy enough for a dinner party and then give away small bottles of the homemade vinegar as thank you gifts!!! Made for MAKE MY RECIPE. THANKS! I made this yet again and served to the neighbors at a BBQ. . .everyone loved it. You say it needs something for color and I keep thinking about this. . .how about shredded red cabbage????

      I have found a new favorite salad this summer! Great combination of flavors, I loved the sweetness of grapes and pears offset by the tartness of the dried cranberries. I used spinach instead of lettuce and left out the raddichio and onion, otherwise made as stated. Next time I may try White Stilton or Wensleydale with blueberries instead of the feta. I used your Blueberry Pomegranate Infused Red Wine Vinegar for the vinegar. Thanks for posting! Made for 123 Hits.

      A nice recipe that uses the sweet-and-tart taste of the dried cranberries to its full potential. I did not have the patience to make my own blueberry-pomegranate vinegar, so I used a blackberry vinegar that I bought at the local deli. This is best served after an hours rest in the fridge, so the tastes have had some time to infuse.
