So good! Loved all the flavors with this salad. Served with roasted chicken and sausage dressing.

This is delicious, easy and healthy. Love it. I omitted the nuts as I'm allergic to nuts. I added some feta instead. The warm pear slices were delicious. I sliced each pear into 8 pieces and that was the perfect size to cook 5 minutes and not have the pear fall apart. I will make this again. Thank you.

This is awesome! It is easy and really delicious! I wasn't sure if I should peel the pears or not. i didn't and that was a good choice! Thanks for the incredible recipe!

This was awesome!!! So delicious I made it for friends three times in one week. Modified it by cutting the pears to smaller pieces and did make it one time with olive oil instead of butter - I think I was starting to feel guilty about all the fat!! _ The oil wasn't as pretty BUT it tasted really good - This will become a regular

This is almost exactly like my favorite salad I make, only I don't cook the pears, I just add them sliced raw (so no butter that way and less fat). Instead of palm sugar I use honey and white wine vinegar to dress the salad. Maybe now that I've seen this I'll try cooking the pears sometime, but they really are great raw too, as long as the pears are really nice and ripe and sweet.

This was very good. The flavors all blended very well. The soft pears gave the cheese a wonderful mild flavor.

EXCELLENT!! For some time now I have been looking for a recipe such as this as we always order something very similar at one of our favourite restaurants in Fremantle, Perth. This recipe is spot on - thank you.

When cooked this way, my pears turned out pretty crunchy, while the nuts (I used pecans) were soggy. Next time I will cut the pears in smaller pieces and/or cook them longer, and maybe use store bought candied pecans. The biggest problem for me is the amount of saturated fat in this recipe, and I don't know if it would work well with oil.
