MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 18, 2010

This salad is fantastic!! The flavors are very subtle, but you can taste every one of them (I thought the Swiss cheese would be weird, but it was PERFECT!!!) Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2010

One of my favorite winter salads, I usually make without the pear , just apples. To make ahead, prepare the dressing and slice the apples into the dressing, put remainder of ingredients together then toss dressing with salad just before serving.

This combination of greens, fruit, nuts and cheese is wonderful! But I often "cheat" and use a bottled poppy seed dressing.

I made this as part of a Thanksgiving dinner and that one time was all it took. My family asks for this salad ALL the time. Make it, you won't be sorry!
