    I make this salad a lot and it's always a hit! If you can spare the extra calories, add crumbled goat cheese on the top too -- the creaminess of the cheese goes great with the pears. :-) - 1/27/09

    Delicious. This salad is exciting compared to the same old, and the dressing is easy to make. I sometimes add in a couple of tablespoons of sliced almonds, dried cranberry and have also make it with canned mandarine oranges if I don't have pears on hand. - 7/5/09

    Very flavourful salad! The pears add a nice texture. Made this for dinner last night using one Red D'Anjou pear. Also added an ounce of plain goat cheese and one 2.6oz pouch of Starkist Tuna for protein. Thanks for sharing! - 2/23/10

    This meal reminded me of my summer in the south of France. I love the taste of combining pear, red onion, and the dressing. - 2/22/09

    This salad is filling, tart and sweet all at the same time. It's also delicious and easy to make. I'm going to try it using orange sections in place of the pears for variation. - 2/1/09
