  • I don't list specific measurements, because I typically serve this "serve yourself" style. Whip up a batch of candied pecans and red wine vinaigrette then set out some chopped romaine, chopped pears, and crumbled blue cheese. Let people build their own salad in a bowl!



Sliced avocado is another great addition to this salad!
To make vegan, just leave off the cheese!
