This. You need this salad in your life. Pretty much immediately.

It started as an apple pecan salad, but quickly as I started making it, it morphed into this amazing Apple Pear Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette, roasted pecans, bleu cheese crumbles, and pomegranate seeds.

I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and supper.
