Pear Salad With Blue Cheese Ranch Dressing


I really enjoy this salad, but the dressing is amazing, and a perfect combination for this mix of greens, nuts and fruit. This Blue Cheese Ranch Dressing recipe has a delicious combination of spice and cheese, add the fruit and nuts with the salad greens and you have a real winner. I have added grilled chicken to this salad to dress it up a bit and served it for a luncheon, but it is a great salad without the grilled chicken. Served with or without the grilled chicken it is a winner every time.

Lets Make The Dressing

It All Goes Into The Food Processor
