    It's great. I make it with lime juice, green onion, a couple of slices of avocado, sliced roasted almonds, and the just a bit of blue cheese on top. It's better when the pears a bit crunchy. Excellent & very pretty salad. - 9/25/08

    I really enjoyed this, but maybe it was the pears I used - I didn't think they added so much flavor to it. I may change to apples instead - 3/19/07
