I'm in love with this salad, I could seriously make an entire meal out of just this! I mixed my dressing in my food processor, so the onion was pretty much pureed, but the flavor gave such a nice balance to the sweetness from the sugar, and the fruit pieces. I didn't have any cashews so I used sliced almonds. Can't wait have it for lunch again tomorrow!

Loved this salad. I served it to guests for a Labor Day bbq. Everyone raved about it. I did not have a pear but it was not missed!
