I was pleasantly surprised with the pears in this salad. The amount of sweet from the fruit and salty from the nuts. You'll be asked for the recipe over and over again.

"This is absolutely delicious! Curiously, I always try something new when bringing a dish somewhere and I made this for our neighborhood picnic last night. The pears were weird to me but they made the salad. Nothing was left so it was a complete hit!"
