Pear & Endive Salad

3

This simple refreshing salad, is a nice change from my usual romaine lettuce, spinach, or kale based salad. I love the bitter taste that you get from the endive especially when paired with the creamy bite of the blue cheese and sweet softness of the pear. If your not a huge blue cheese fan  you can substitute a tangy goat cheese but I would recommend punching up your salad dressing in that case to give it a little more zip which naturally occurs with the blue cheese.
