Pear slices tossed with salad greens, red onion and blue cheese are drizzled with tangy raspberry vinaigrette in this refreshing salad. After enjoying a similar dish at a restaurant, I came home and worked up my own version. My family declared it a winner. -Marjorie Zalewski, Toledo, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2013

This is a wonderful spring salad, filled with color and flavor. I love the perk this dressing gives to the salad. I have made this a few times, always with raves from guests.
