"This delicious salad works well as a side or on its own. Especially good in fall and winter months when fresh summer salad fare is harder to come by."

Used just 2 cloves garlic and added one extra tbsp brown sugar which seemed to spike up the flavor. Delicious!

Overall this salad was tasty. I do however believe that an entire cup of salad dressing would be too much for 6 servings, but i only made enough for myself, and adjusted the amount i made to taste. I used a yellow Bartlett pear, because that's what i had on hand, but would be tasty with any pear.I also omitted the pecans, and added extra almonds. I used shredded Havarti cheese with some cubes of sharp cheddar and added some slivers of red onion, because i love the contrast of that onion flavor with the sweetness of the cranberries. Its a great change from the typical salad, and reminds me of one you would order in a restaurant! Next time i will add a bit of Dijon mustard to the dressing.

Made this salad for a family gathering to celebrate Dad's 81st birthday. Had to double the recipe but it turned out that I should have tripled it, everyone wanted more. It was absolutely delicious and so very easy to put together.
