Since Fall Fest is featuring pears this week, here is my favorite fall salad that I like to make this time of year and on Thanksgiving. It’s so simple to prepare with mixed greens, dried cranberries, sliced pears and toasted pecans. I like to make my own Poppy Seed Dressing with a touch of shallots in it. If you don’t have time to make your own dressing, purchase a bottle poppy seed dressing. Feel free to vary this recipe, using different pear varieties and walnuts instead of pecans. This salad is also wonderful with the addition of goat cheese. It’s so pretty and a fresh taste of fall. Enjoy.
