This is one of my favourite late summer or autumn salads - perfect for days where it’s warm during the day but cools down at night. The saltiness of the blue cheese contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of the pears. Do make sure that you watch the pecan nuts as they can burn very easily and each oven is different. Check every minute or so until you are practised. You can make a large batch and store for up to 1 month in an air tight container.
