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.
2 Large Endives
Slice of Blue Cheese- Crumbled
1/4 Cup of Pecans or Walnuts- Crumbled
1 tablespoon- cream or salad dressing
Step 1- Dice up your endive & pear and mix together.
Step 2-Using a 1/4 of your blue cheese -mix it in with your tablespoon of cream to create a light blue cheese dressing. Toss with pear & endive.
Step 3- Garnish with 3/4 of your crumbled blue cheese & nuts. Serve!
