This is a salad that I have made my own. I had the original version at a restaurant, years ago. The restaurant is no longer in business, but I think this comes as close as I’ll ever get. The dressing to this salad is key, it is tangy, salty, sweet and not only complements the pears but also works with many other salad combinations. I have used it with grilled chicken on a big salad and I liked it almost as much as on a side dinner salad. But with pears, it is supreme!
