    Refreshing salad with a bit of tang. I was shy on chicken and used bleu cheese and it was still delicious. I used balsamic vinegar Will be made again

    Really nice!! I love the way the mustard goes with the sweet tang of the pears. This is a great salad to impress company with. Definite keeper! Thanks Amber (-:


<p>I live in Arizona. Cooking is a relaxing hobby and I love finding healthy meals that have a lot of flavor and heart to them. Recipezaar has not let me down. I could not possibly pick a favorite cookbook. I love searching used bookstores for old cookbooks. I collect other cookbooks that look intresting or have healthy dishes. My collection is modest, but I love it. Also, I love the Taste of Home magazines. They have real food that real people cook. I would have to say my pet peeves are people who drive while talking on cell phones and people who cannot spell potato. It is p o t a t o not p o t a t o e. There is no e unless you are spelling the plural form of potato which is potatoes. I frequently see that word mispelled in recipes and it makes me think the recipe is somehow devalued because of the spellings. The Zaar system of ratings works for me. I do try to explain myself in my reviews and welcome any questions or comments on what I have said. It is not my intention to be mean-spirited if I did not like something (it is rare for me not to like a recipe though):) Recipezaar brings such a nice element to my life and I feel it has been enriched by the wealth of knowledge both in everyone's contributed recipes and on the forums. Also, it is such a nice feature that you can log on practically any time to get help with a recipe or ingredient that might otherwise be imtimidating to prepare by yourself.</p>
