Took this to a potluck at work. Not only did it look beautiful, the taste was divine. Many of my co-workers requested the recipe. This one is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing this one.
Loved this salad and so did my family. It had a smooth, creamy taste and texture. The pears add a sweetness that was sooooo yummy. Nice green color, too. Thanks for a luscious summer salad.
This is not just a summer salad! I made it for Thanksgiving. I did not mash the pears completely, but rather left some of them in small chunks. I also added cinnamon to give it a spicier flavor. Very good!
