I give it more stars than the rating scale allows for! An incredible melding of flavors and textures!!! Next time I would use less oil when roasting the squash as I would have liked more of a crust on the squash. I made it last night and will make it again tonight. It will become one of my regulars!
Fantastic! Unusual combination and great balance of flavor and texture.
Absolutely marvelous! The roasted squash and pear is sublime along with the spiced pecans. I made another Fine Cooking recipe two nights ago (Autumn Vegetable soup, another favorite) and used the leftover butternut squash for this salad. Two back to back winners! Just like other reviewers suggested, I also added some blue cheese. It worked wonderfully, especially with the pear! A definite keeper!
I agree with all the other reviewers----absolutely fantastic salad! The flavors all work perfectly together. And a bit of bleu cheese is a great addition.
This salad is absolutely outstanding. I was looking for something different for New Year's Eve and everyone agreed this was one of the best salads ever. I will definitely be making this one again.
What a lovely salad! I agree with the other reviews posted...the flavors and textures are delicious in this recipe. Perfect Fall salad.
Made this salad last night and it was really fantastic. I could easily make a meal just with this salad. Flavors and textures were excellent!! Everything worked together so well. I'll be making this often.
This is one of our favorite salads. All the flavors work together so well. I just had to add a comment about it, because I can't believe more haven't reviewed this recipe...it's just fantastic!
The pecans were the most wonderful I've ever had. We're giving these as Christmas presents. Salad was fabulous.
Used this recipe for a formal fall luncheon. Only change I make was adding a wedge of Stilton Blue to the salad. Was loved by all.
