Chipotle Chile Candied Pecan, Dried Cranberry, and Crumbled Blue Cheese Salad

I really liked the way that this salad sounded when I was making the Chipotle Chile Candied Pecans a few days ago, so I went out and got all of the ingredients to put it together for lunch today. I used sliced pears and some aged balsamic and good quality extra-virgin olive oil to dress the salad. It was out of this world! The crunchy, sweet, spicy pecans really add something wonderful to this already great combination of ingredients. I’ll definitely be making this again!
