    We really enjoyed this. It was quite different, but the flavors went together well. I think I might try butternut squash next time.

    We used goat cheese instead of blue cheese. Added garlic salt and pepper to first vegetable toss

    We made this tonight and it was wonderful! The pears really make this unique. We realized we didn't have balsamic vinegar at the last minute so we used balsamic salad dressing. We can't wait to make this again.
