Pear Gorgonzola Salad

I am a reformed picky eater; I try new tastes now, but I still do so with some hesitation - but the flavors in this salad blend well with the vinaigrette dressing with no one ingredient dominating the combination. This is a great holiday salad - simple to prepare, but full of taste and ingredients that go beyond the everyday. Serve this up at a holiday gathering this year using the wonderful fresh lettuce, pears and lemons from All Seasons, and wow your friends and family!
