Lettuce mix - variety of leaves

Combine all dressing ingredients in the blender and blend.  Chill until time to serve.  Slice pears and red onion and lay on salad.  Lightly toss with salad and top with bleu cheese.  To candy pecans, mix 1/2 cup raw pecans with 2 TBSP. melted butter and 2 TBSP. brown sugar.  Lay out flat on parchment paper and bake at 350 for 5 minutes.  Stir and turn over and bake for another 5 minutes.
