Delicious! This combination works very well. Pears are such an underused fruit, in my opinion, so I was happy to see this recipe. I made this exactly as written. The dressing was good, but I feel like it should have had more flavor like some mustard and citrus. Next time I will add those (and maybe more) to the dressing. Thanx!

What a lovely combination of flavours and textures! I didn't realize how well gorgonzola would go with pear, so it was a very, very pleasant surprise. I used more vinegar and less olive oil in the salad (personal preference). We really enjoyed this salad, thanks for posting the recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
