Delightful! Fresh and crisp, with a nice Fresh Pear taste. I used pecans, that's what I had on hand. Will certainly make again. Yummmm. Thanks for sharing this little jewel.
I really enjoyed this salad. I made a smaller size for myself at home, but think I may make it again for Thanksgiving for everyone. I may try Pattikay's suggestion and try a little brandy to soak the pears in ahead of time for a different twist. ;) It was fine just the way it is. Thanks for a great flavor of the Pacific NW, Annacia!! **Made for 1-2-3 tag**
A nice variation of Waldorf salad. I used cashews instead of hazelnuts and added a bit of sugar. My DS thought that maybe the pears should be soaked in something before mixing because he thought they were overshadowed by the other ingredients. I might try a bit of amaretto next time. Thanks for posting!
