“A mix of juicy pears, sweetened nuts, dried cherries, and feta cheese makes this is a show-stopping sweet salad! The taste and colors will impress! You may add more of the pear syrup to the dressing to make it thinner, or increase the amount of yogurt for creamier results.”

Decrease salt to a pinch, 1/8 tsp, and a little less vinegar! It makes all the difference in the world, and you have a sweet pear puree to drizzle over your greens and fruit! Perfect!

I did not care for this recipe. Making the nuts the way it says, when the sugar hardens, the pan and utinsels used are coated with an extremly hard sugar. I did not care for the dressing. I threw it out and made something different.
