READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by susie cooks

Great salad! I used fresh picked, ripe pears from my neighbor. The dressing is so yummy! The blue cheese, pears and spinach compliment each other wonderfully! This is a beautiful salad. It really reminds of something I would get at a top restaurant! Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
