What a delicious salad!  With crisp pears, creamy Gorgonzola cheese and crunchy walnuts, it’s sure to please.  You can serve this salad tossed any time, but I like to arrange it on individual plates for Christmas to serve with our prime rib.  It looks so pretty on the table with it’s red pears.  Update:  this recipe call for Romaine lettuce which you may not want to use right now.  Substitute another, safer, lettuce.

P.S.  I can’t say I’m surprised that salad kills.  A cupcake would never pull this shit.
