Oven-roasted pears take the ho-hum out of this green salad created by our Test Kitchen staff. They tossed together a good-for-you medley of mellow pear slices, crispy greens, nuts and dried cranberries. The creamy dressing carries yet more pear flavor sweetened with just a touch of honey.

This was good. Liked adding the pears to the dressing for more pear flavoring. Served with Asian Pork Tenderloin.
