In small bowl, beat vinaigrette ingredients with wire whisk. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.

In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over high heat. Add pears and sugar; cook and stir 6 to 8 minutes or until fruit is tender and golden. Cool slightly.

In large salad bowl, toss greens, onion and half the vinaigrette. Transfer to large platter. Arrange pears, pecans and cheese over greens. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Serve immediately.

If pears cool to room temperature, reheat in nonstick skillet 2 to 3 minutes to allow caramel mixture to become syrupy.

Look for candied pecans in the bulk section of the grocery store or with the snack nuts.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
