Roquefort Pear Salad Recipe. This salad is GREAT! However, I definitely recommend using gorgonzola cheese instead of roquefort cheese (it tastes better, is cheaper & easier to find) I also used pink lady apples instead of pears just because I like them better, and I skipped the avocado because I didn't have one. You could probably add chicken to this to make it a main course. ENJOY!
