The tangy dressing perfectly complements the sweet cranberries and pear! Adding chicken, this salad serves four people as a filling meal. Usually I'm a blue cheese advocate but I would leave it out of this salad next time - its flavor doesn't stand out enough against the others to be worth the fat grams.
