"We used goat cheese instead of blue cheese. Added garlic salt and pepper to first vegetable toss"

"We made this tonight and it was wonderful! The pears really make this unique. We realized we didn't have balsamic vinegar at the last minute so we used balsamic salad dressing. We can't wait to make this again."
