Pear & Blue Cheese Salad

This crisp fall salad gets its tartness from fresh pears, an extra crunch from pecans and a hint of creaminess from blue cheese. It's simple, but always impresses. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

    Wonderful recipe...! I used Chunky Bleu Cheese Dressing instead of the Balsamic Vinaigrette. Loved the sweet taste of the pear, the crunch of the nuts, and the sharp taste of the bleu cheese. Will make this salad again.
