Wow - now this is a vinaigrette! And just as the submitter states - it's a light and lovely salad dressing that lends itself to a simple and elegant salad. This was so easy to put together and was perfect accompnaiment to a Thanksgiving meal. And I must say I'll definitely be making this for other special occasions. It's a great combination of flavors and everyone enjoyed it. I did opt to used canned pears along with a little bit of the juice vs. a fresh pear. I also used a very nice Chardonnay for the white wine and after it was done blending I did add just a touch of honey for sweetness. This definitely gets better over time and thickens up so be sure to make it the night before. This was fabulous over a mix of butter lettuce dried cranberries chopped apples and pears toasted walnuts and topped with goat cheese crumbles. Great recipe!
This is without a doubt one of the best salad dressings I've ever had. I loved how the combo of the sweet and the tart blended so well with a Northwest inspired salad. Rather than use fresh pears in the dressing I did use 3 home-canned pear halves. The rest of the dressing was made exactly as written and will be made many times more. Incredibly delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.
This is a very delicious dressing especially when made with home canned pears. My pear wasn't quite as sweet as I would have liked so I was glad to have had Avon's first so I knew the difference! As with all salad dressings this gets better as it sits so the flavors meld together. Yum!
I made this as written using light olive oil rather than extra virgin. When I first tasted it I thought the white wine (I used a nice chardonnay) was overpowering but it seemed to mellow out as it sat so I would suggest making this in advance. I don t think my pear was very sweet so I did end up putting about 1 teaspoon of brown sugar in it which made it just right. I served this on a salad of mixed greens chopped pear toasted pine nuts and feta cheese. Very good! I d like to try it with apple next time.
Meh....I was hoping this would be a really different tasting dressing. The ingredients really looked good to me that's why I made it. It just tasted like vinegar with mustard in it to me. I wouldn't guess pear at all. I think next time I will increase the pear and only put it 1 tps of mustard.
Delightful! I neglected to peel my pear and it didn't seem to make a difference. I could not find white balsamic vinegar so I used brown and I used yellow mustard per personal preference. I served it over a chopped veggie salad and it was wonderful. This will be a regular in my salad dressing rotation. THANK YOU jill tall!
