MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 11, 2013

excellent recipe. I used apple instead of pear and walnuts in place of pecans. Very good flavor. I will certainly used this for family dinners.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2013

Great flavor and so easy. I only use 1 Tablespoon of sugar - the pear and cranberries add sweetness to the mix. Will make this often!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 18, 2012

I don't put any celery in since my son doesn't like raw celery. I like sliced raw white button mushrooms with my spinach salads so I add that instead. I also decrease the sugar a bit since it is a tad sweet for our tastes. Otherwise this is definitely a keeper!

We have made this several times, changing the fruit and once substituting celery see for the celery. Always good. I think it is the dressing that puts it over the top. We have decreased the sugar in the dressing as we found it too sweet.

Great flavor. Forgot the celery when I made it and it was still good.
