Bartlett or Anjou pears are used in this salad for their crisp texture. The nut and cheese combination sets the tone of the dish—white Cheddar and pecans is decidedly American. For an Italian twist, try a good Parmesan with some toasted walnuts.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare salad without pecans up to 2 hours ahead. Stir in pecans just before serving.

2 tablespoons  cider, pear, raspberry or other fruit vinegar
