    Cookgirl's Note:

    I used mixed greens, pears, honey and bleu cheese-all from Oregon sources in this salad. For alternate versions, try two different varieties of pears. For example, I tested Forelle and Anjou pears. Rogue Creamery artisan cheesemaker supplied the bleu cheese (in particular their Smokey Blue), too. A light dressing tops it off. From a local source. Makes 6 small dinner salads. A perfect salad for a brunch or light meal. Happy 2009!

      This looks wonderful and I think I will try it with apples and pecans that we usually have on hand. Thanks for this.

      You can't go wrong with this combination. The dressing is simple, but it's perfect for this salad. It's just adds a splash of sweet citrus and doesn't overwhelm the flavors of the salad itself. It's a simple tasty salad. Thanx!
