Asian Pear and Goat Cheese Salad, with Sweet and Tangy Dressing

Author Notes: Green salads can get boring, and so I combined some of my favorite fall ingredients and assembled a simple dressing with a delicious and unexpected taste that complements the flavors and brings a fresh flavor to even the dreariest day. This salad is a light accompaniment to heavier fall entrees!Deborah Dowd
