Great salad! I could not find pear nectar anywhere here (shopping here can be a pain!) so I used the juice from canned pears and seemed to work well, although I'm sure nectar would have been so much better. I enjoy fruit in my salads and will be adding this to my keeper list. Thanks for sharing.
I substituted fried goat cheese rounds for the blue cheese, but I will make again with the blue cheese. Loved it!
We loved this salad! The pear I used could have been a bit more ripe but it tasted great anyway. I see pear nectar all of the time until I need it. Argh. I bought pear juice and reduced 1 1/2 cups down to 1/2 cup in lieu of the nectar and I just love the dressing. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
ETA. I made twice the recipe for the candied walnuts. Loving my 'Walnut Brittle' a great bonus to the recipe :)
