Pear & Walnut Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

I came up with this salad recipe for Father's Day, and it was a huge hit. I strongly recommend Kittencal's Balsamic Vinaigrette and Perfectly Candied Pecans in this!! (I used both walnuts and pecans when making the candied nuts.) It's really pretty if you can get yellow pear tomatoes and use a red pepper, or vise versa.

Awesome! This has all the flavors I love. I diced a roma tomato instead of using cherry tomatoes and the dressing was a homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

What a nice lunch this made with fresh homemade bread. Yummy. The salad was perfect, it tasted as good as it looked. I used a vine ripen tomato, chopped pecans and white balsamic vinaigrette, it was what I had in the house. They worked great in this recipe. The organic baby Spring Mixed Greens were a nice base for the pears and feta. Thanks for sharing this tasty treat Katzen. Made for Favorites of 2010.

Pleasing visual and flavor combo - I like the walnut/pear "pair" especially. I used an Asian pear; they hold up much better in salads. I'm sure your family will want this to be a Father's Day tradition!
