We had a lovely salad in Sienna with the same combination. Their presentation was SO memorable, that we have served it many times. The pears and cheese were sliced in thin strips and placed alternately on the plate, in sunburst design. To finish, there was just a drizzle of honey over the entire serving. Looks VERY dramatic ! Thanks for the memory, Lauralie.
