READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by MTpockets

I have not tried this one yet but I thought It sounded interesting so I thought I'd save it here until I can try it myself. For more texture you could add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts to this salad. Cook time is chill time.

Woops! Forgot to say that I kept the pears in-tact and didn't mash them although I've made this dish both ways. Some like the firmness of the pears when I leave them alone but it's definitely a personal preference kind of thing. Sorry I didn't mention this in my previous review ... but it's still a 5-star rating!
