Very easy and quite good. I always make a gelatin salad for the kids on holidays. Since they don't eat nuts, I omitted the pecans although I think they would have been delicious. Would suggest cutting the pears in smaller rather than larger pieces. This looks lovely in a ring mold, and would be stunning when creatively garnished. Thanks, NurseDi, for sharing!
