      LOVED it! I made this last night for dinner as our main dish, so I topped hubby's with poached chicken breast. I subbed the romaine for napa cabbage which was great. And in the dressing, I subbed 1 packet of truvia for the sugar, added some fresh grated ginger (which I totally recommend), and replaced 1 Tbsp of the oil with water (to decrease fat). Next time I will let the salad (minus the pears) marinate for about 30 minutes and then top with the pears and seeds just before serving.

      Delicious! I made as directed except for subbing an asian pear for one of the red and adding more green onions. The salad was perfect for a hot day~~~ very refreshing and not too heavy. I liked the combination of crunchy, sweet, and savory and the colors have lots of eye appeal.
