My friend Rose Marie Lorio makes delicious salads and salad dressings.
She recently served this Pear, Strawberry and Blue Cheese Salad at a dinner party, and all the guests loved it.
She seems to always have a dressing that complements all the fixings in the salad.
This is not an unusual salad, but the flavors of the good olive oil, blue cheese and sugared pecans when combined were delicious.
She reminded me to add a handful of blueberries to the salad now that they are in season. They can be added in place of or in addition to the other fruit.
