  4. Note: I made a variation of this 2 years at Thanksgiving. I used apples instead of pears. The sugar was omitted. I changed the vinegar to NATURAL cider vinegar. This particular vinegar has a more pronounced apple taste. I used sunflower oil, but a lightly flavored extra virgin olive oil would be OK. Next time I make this I think I will do the apple version and add in some walnut oil to the dressing in place of some of the other oil.
