NONE of you are going without me!

kadesma - I make something similar - just a simple red wine vinaigrette but I top with pears, just like you, and with fresh blueberries, versus your blueberry vinegar - I can only imagine how wonderful your salad was. You have got to try it with blue cheese - OH MY!

OK - I've got a few things packed - waiting at the curb! It's kinda cold tonight so don't take too long girls!

Elf,
it was a really nice salad, different as I usually dont roast pears or fruit but this was different and we tried it with Licia's pecorino and next time it will be the blue cheese. I do think I'm going to try just a red wine vinegar, my kids like the blackberry and I do too, but, I want the pears to come through more and blackberry kind of masks their sweetness.

There's a restaurant here that does a salad with roasted pears. I've always wanted to recreate it. Did you use firm pears?

Yes I used a firm red pear and I cut the slices pretty thick so they wouldn't smoosh up when moving them.
