I first made this salad for my family's Thanksgiving dinner several years ago as a starter, and it was a big hit. This recipe was inspired after I had some pear and walnut salad at a restaurant. Since I'm a busy professional woman and don't have lots of time to cook, I wanted to make something quick and easy, yet tasty, using premade ingredients you can find at regular grocery stores.

good salad, served it on Christmas for 20 people, got great feedback! however, i could not find the dressing suggested in the recipe, so i used some rasberry vinegrette i had on hand, i think next time i would use a balsamic vinegrette.

This is a delicious salad! I have been making a salad similar to this, however, I use feta cheese, fresh apple chunks, and Maple Grove Fat-Free Cranberry Balsamic Salad Dressing because I have been dieting. The madarin oranges really make it better I was wondering if Joy Chou has a recipe for Cranberry Dressing?

VERY TASTY. We didn't have mandarin oranges on hand and it still tasted good, but I'm sure it would have been even better with the oranges. If any of you have tasted the California Citrus Salad from the restaurant Claim Jumper, this salad tastes JUST like it.
