In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the spinach, pears, onions, tomatoes, and pecans, if using. Toss with dressing and divide evenly among 4 salad plates. Top with goat cheese and serve.
If vegan, eliminate cheese and swap maple syrup for honey in dressing.
