Not bad. Instead of soda I just used a little lemon juice. Subbed toasted walnuts for the pine nuts. I tried the raspberry dressing and liked using a plain balsamic from Trader Joe's better. Nice presentation.
Made it twice once according to directions once 'my way'. It was very nice as rated but got more compliments on my version. Used goat cheese instead of feta made spiced candied walnuts instead of pine nuts and made my own lemon viniagrette instead of bottled dressing. Omitted soda completely. Great with romaine as well.
Great salad! My advice if this is your first time is to follow the recipe and use "real" pears. I used canned pears and they were mushy. Didnt have pine nuts so I made candied pecans which was excellent! I also prefer bleu cheese but the feta was a nice change (Still gunna use bleu next time as its a personal favorite). All in all yummy!
I think this salad is PERFECT!! Very easy and quick to prepare and just flat out excellent!:) I do agree though that the soda could easily be omitted. I just sprinkled the pears with lemon juice and it turned out great!
I make this all the time now and not only do I love it so does my boyfriend who is avidly anti-healthy food. It's easy. I made it without the soda and I admit it was slightly less good that way. I used Diet Sprite and it was tasty.
