    Gay Gilmore's Note:

    This is absolutely stunning as a first course. I have used other nuts and other cheeses and it always turns out lovely.

      My friend did this salad for me at a dinner she had. It was so fabulous I had to ask her for recipe. I made it again a few days later, and the family loved it. I lost the recipe at home and thanks to the net, I have it again! Definately a must do salad! I served it at the end of the meal. It was like serving a 'salad' and 'dessert' in one dish! If you do do this recipe, do add the shaved cheese. It's amazing!

      Couldn't roast the pears (ran out of butter!!), but I used nice ripe Bosc pears, chopped, and it worked very well. I thought the dressing was a bit bland, but the quick addition of the juice of half a lemon brightened it up. The salad was a very big hit - very flavorable and a little step up from the usual first course salad.

      Absolutely loved this. Pears took a little longer to roast but my husband and I chowed down on this. Will definitely use again - maybe throw some blue cheese in-hmmmmm!
