Pear & Walnut Salad W/Creamy Bleu (Blue) Cheese Dressing
10 mins (prep 10)

This salad is a little different from most pear and walnut salads as it has a creamy bleu cheese dressing, not a vinaigrette. The creaminess of the dressing, the sweetness of the pears, the crunch from the glazed walnuts and a little zip from the dried cranberries make this a very unique and tasty salad. I started making it this way a few years ago, and everyone loved it, so it is a staple in our house now. The combination of the flavors is awesome. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
