    My best friend is on a low-carb diet. I made this for her birthday dinner and everyone (including the kids) loved it. Very easy to do.

      Good salad, with a nice blend of flavors. This was my first experience with endive, and I found it to be a little bitter, though the sweetness of the pears helped to counterbalance it. I added chopped walnuts, which was probably not the best idea, since it compounded the bitterness issue. Pecans would have been a better choice.

      For the blue cheese, 1/3 cup is plenty - I would say it's a five star if the amount in the recipe were reduced. I made this once with radicchio and it was equally good as the Belgian Endive; either one holds up well in the refrigerator without getting soggy; the leftovers with grilled chicken makes a delicious lunch. Lovely and easy!

      Very nice simple salad, much governed by the quality of the bleu cheese and the vinegar. Made almost perfect by a perfectly ripe pear.
