The pear gave this dish a unique twist that I usually don't see in chicken salad recipes. I liked the addition of bell peppers--it added a lot of color to the dish, which made it look very pretty on the table.

If you're looking for a unique dish, this is it! I love how all of the different flavors blended together. The one tweak I would make is to leave the apples uncooked for extra crunch.
