To make the salsa, toss the pears with the canola oil. Place the pears on a hot grill or grill pan. Grill for 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and cool. Core and chop grilled pears into small pieces and place in a small bowl. Add red onions, garlic, jalapeno, oregano, and lemon juice. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

To make the quesadillas, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the shredded chicken, green onions, and Gruyere together. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven until cheese is melted.
