    This was so good! As I was putting it together, I thought it might be too sweet, but all the flavors combined perfectly for a sweet/savory treat. The peas (which I crushed slightly) weren't very spicy once blended into the salad, but they provided a great crunch that contrasted nicely with the chewy cherries. I used Poppy Seed Dressing II, from this site, and it was a perfect complement. This is so easy and delicious, I'll be making it often. (UPDATE: It doesn't make the best leftovers; the peas get way too soft. Best eaten fresh.)  -  24 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This recipe was great inspiration! I love wasabi peas and because of that this recipe encouraged me to eat some veggies! I used spinach, golden raisins, carrots, cucumbers, wasabi peas and a quick, homemade mustard vinaigrette. Thanks for the great idea!  -  23 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I used crasins instead of the dried cherries and apples instead of pears (sometimes you just have to work with what's in the house, right?) and added some sliced strawberries and a vidalia onion vinegarette dressing. DELISH!!! My husband and I are new vegetarians and this was a FANTASTIC quick dinner!!!  -  15 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
