Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER easy and sooooooo good. SUPER easy and sooooooo good. Eight cups of spinach is a LOT, I used 1/2 of that. Also only used 1/2+ cup vinegarette. Everyone wanted the recipe! LoL. I soaked the pears overnight and probably won't do that again. They were too mushy the next day. But otherwise, this was one of the best salads I've ever had the pleasure of making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! WOW! This was good. When three teenagers ask if you'll make it again you know you got something. I did not put the dressing over the entire salad. I let everyone do that for themselves. Worked out great because we did have a small bowlful left that I ate for lunch the next day and it was crisp.

I used this recipe many times this summer and fall to make a quick lunch for guests and for my family. It was always a hit. The flavors are so good together.If I was out of fresh pears, I used canned mandarin oranges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT! GREAT! I used less spinach because I was only cooking for 2. I also used canned pears and mixed some of the pear juice with the raspberry vinegarette before pouring over. Definitely a tasty salad.
