Ingredients

Pear Vinaigrette:

Salad:

Directions

  1. For the pear vinaigrette: Heat the pear juice on stovetop over medium heat to reduce to 1/4 of its original amount, for 40 minutes, until caramelized. Set aside and let cool. 
  2. In a bowl, mix the reduced pear juice, cider vinegar, maple syrup, and Dijon mustard. Slowly add the canola oil whisking constantly. Season the vinaigrette with salt, and pepper, to taste. Add a little more pear juice or water if the vinaigrette is too thick. Set aside. 
  3. For the salad: 
  4. In a pan, add the olive oil and toast the pine nuts on medium-high heat. Keep an eye on them because they tend to burn fast. 
  5. Place the endives and grapes in a bowl, add the vinaigrette and mix well. Transfer the salad mixture in the serving bowls and garnish with pears, pine nuts and cheese.

Cook’s Note

*Old Cheddar or Gouda can be substituted for the Mimolette.
