      This is a very good and attractive salad. I used pecan halves as I did not have walnuts. I also used spinach, romain and endive for my assorted greens - it turned out wonderful! I recommend using this salad as a lunch item or first course meal - if you "blend" it with other flavors in a meal it may take away from the taste of this. Next time I may try some cut up brie cheese for a different taste. Really great salad - worth trying!!

      This is an excellent salad. I added some dried cranberries and topped with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Try CANDIED walnuts for little variety, too!

      Very easy and flavorful. We like with less dressing, so I used 1/4 cup for 6 cups of salad green to be tossed with. The extra vinaigrette can be stored in frige for a while for more of this salad. A couple of our guest did not care for gargonzola, so that was left on the side for self-serve. Everyone liked how nicely the pear & walnut (& cheese) fit together.
