    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (15 ounce) can pear halves (reserve 1/3 cup juice) or 1 slice in juice (reserve 1/3 cup juice)
    • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
    • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts
    • 2 bags about 8 ounces each endive mixed salad greens, including Belgian endive, radicchio, escarole, frise, chicory or 2 lbs , the same lettuce in heads cleaned of damaged leaves, cored, washed and broken in bite-size pieces


    1. 1
      To make dressing, purée all dressing ingredients, including reserved 1/3 cup juice from pears, in a blender or food processor until smooth.
    2. 2
      Soak onion in ice water for at least 10 minutes; drain.

      Toss lettuce and onions with dressing. Garnish with toasted walnuts.
