Gorgonzola Pear Salad With Merlot Shallot Dressing

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
14 ingredients
4 servings
An elegant summer salad...found at The Fresh Market and tweaked slightly! Not sure why it was dubbed "Merlot" Shallot Dressing, as the original recipe calls for Rose. I used a Pinot Noir and enjoyed the results, so I think any lighter red will work well.
