    Cookgirl's Note:

    I cut this salad recipe out of a weekly local newspaper the other day and haven't had the chance to test it. I would like to try golden beets for the red beets. If you cannot find mache (lamb's lettuce), substitute butter lettuce or fresh mixed greens. Serve with crusty French bread!

      Yum! The dressing packs quite a punch, so I may dilute it with a bit of water next time. Make sure your pears are nice and ripe. I am a HUGE beet lover, so I knew we would like this salad. Thanks so much for posting!

      We loved this salad!! The earthy taste of roasted beets, the sweetness of the pears and the slight tartness of the feta make this salad sensational. Visually beautiful too - the pears and feta take on the pinkish hue of the beets. This is one of the best salads I've tasted and I can see me making this a lot over the coming summer.Thanks Cookgirl!!
