This is a fantastically light and fruity salad. Iceberg lettuce is tossed with feta and pears in a balsamic vinaigrette. Serve as a side dish to any meal or as a starter.
Asian pears are also known as apple pears. If unavailable at your local supermarket, you will find them in Chinese speciality shops.
I thought this salad was great. I used Romane and a light Raspberry Vinaigrette. I also added a handful of toasted pinenuts. I could eat this every day. thanks for a great salad!!! - 19 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is one of our favorite salads. We use romaine and just d'anjou pears. Add your favorite style chicken and its a meal in itself. - 29 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this salad was delicious. the pears and balsamic go together perfectly. i added some sliced almonds for a little extra flavor. some might find the balsamic vinegar a little overpowering so you may want to add a bit less than the recipe calls for, or put it on the side. i'll definitely make this salad again! - 24 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
