Milk Street Recipe

Shaved Pear and Endive Salad with Blue Cheese and Pecans

20 minutes

Sweet, salty, tangy, bitter—this flavorful salad has it all, as well as crispness from the toasted pecans and creaminess from the blue cheese. A mandoline creates perfectly thin slices of vegetables and fruit that combine beautifully with baby arugula. Dressing the shaved pear with lemon juice and salt and letting it stand for a few minutes while you prep the endive and radicchio not only prevents discoloration, it infuses the fruit with a tartness that balances its natural sugars.
