This was fantastic. DH couldn't stop raving. Made as directed with apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, pecans, white cheddar, celery, and red pears. Looked beautiful and tasted great. The flavors went very well together and the syrup gave it a pleasant sweetness that you don't often find in dressings. Will definitely make again.
This is a delicious salad which is quick and easy to make. I didn't bother to soak my celery and it was still quite crispy. I did use honey instead of the maple syrup and local Wisconsin organic pears. I didn't happen to have any cheddar but had some organic mozzarella from a local farm which had good flavor and texture. It really let the pears shine.
I used NY State sharp cheddar, and romaine leaves. Made this for the family that I cook for, and they all want me to make it again. In my book, that's a winner!
This was delicious! The combination of the celery with the pears and pecans was delicious. I think next time I'll try it with Feta or Queso Ranchero cheese. Thanks for a definite keeper Sheila!
This salad went over very well on an extreme hot day, I used toasted almonds in place of the pecans, the combo if the crunchy celery with fruit combines well together, I used feta in place of the white cheddar that worked out well, we enjoyed this salad MathMom, thanks for sharing!...Kitten:)
This was so yummy! I made half the recipe and my DH and I ate it for lunch. I used a Bosc pear and extra sharp cheddar cheese - the maple syrup (I used sugar free) and cider vinegar really makes a unique and great tasting salad. Very easy and quick to prepare, thanks for sharing!
