READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

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.
