    this salad worked out great! I changed so much though: pecans instead of walnuts, goat cheese instead of blue cheese (too hard to find), & instead of mixed greens, I used artisan romaine lettuce leaves & filled them with a mixture of the rest. it was so good! thanks for the great ideas.

    I just realized that your directions say nothing about adding the pears, cheese, and nuts. Just a friendly suggestion: perhaps you want to amend that so it can be clearer. Thank you.
