Recipe Notes

If making salad in advance I will slice the bartlett pear to and sprinkle them with lemon juice. This helps to prevent browning and enhances the flavor of the pear. I also leave the pears out to room temperature. They seem to be juicer then when they are cold. The final tip is to make your salad dressing in advance and make extra for later.
