Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup pecan halves
1 Tbs. sherry vinegar
1 Tbs. red wine vinegar
1 Tbs. walnut oil
3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 pears, 1 1/2 lb. total, halved, cored and diced
2 cups (12 oz.) red and green seedless grapes in any combination
2 green or red apples


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.

Add the vinaigrette, toss gently to coat and serve.
