    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)
