This is a restaurant quality salad made with sliced pears, candied pecans, and blue cheese all over a bed of greens.  It is made with greens, a garden type salad served with a dressing.  We used raspberry vinaigrette but you can use your choice.

This recipe is sized to serve four.  You may adjust quantities of ingredients to suit your preferences.


1 bag of prepared salad greens, 8 to 10 ounces
2 ripe pears, washed and sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
3/4 cup glazed pecans
2 to 3 ounces of blue cheese, crumbled
Dressing of your choice.  A vinaigrette works nicely.


  1. Divide the greens into four bowls or onto four salad plates.
  2. Arrange the pears slices on top of the greens.
  3. Lay several slices of red pepper over the pears.
  4. Sprinkle with pecans and blue cheese.  Drizzle with dressing and serve.
