I love spinach, and have developed quite a fondness for pears lately. This salad was posted by Bonnie Lloyd in the cookbook "June Fete Fare". Cooking time is the time it takes to toast the pecan halves.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the first 10 ingredients together, preferably with a food processor or blender so that it mixes well. Set the dressing aside.
  2. Remove and discard the stems from the spinach leaves. Wash spinach, and pat dry with paper towels. Combine the spinach, pears, raisins, and pecans in a large bowl. Pour reserved dressing over salad, and toss gently. Serve immediately.

This was an excellent salad. We love pears & spinach and had both so this was a no brainer. DH said "give it 10 stars" Made for trifecta football Pool week 11

Delicious. I have a sister whoe doesn't eat sugar, so I tried without the sugar. It was still good.

Great Salad, I loved using the pears. I didn't have rasins or pecans, so next time I REALLY like it. Made for Tag forum.
