Preheat an oven to 350°F.


Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast until lightly browned and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes.


Remove from the oven and let cool.


In a small bowl, whisk together the sherry vinegar, red wine vinegar, walnut oil, olive oil, salt and pepper to form a vinaigrette.


In a salad bowl, combine the pears, grapes, apples and pecans.

Notes

My sister makes this salad often, and it is delicious. I don't know where she got the recipe from, but it is a favorite at family parties.

A dash of local for every season
