Radicchio, Pear, and Blue Cheese Salad

Radicchio, Pear, and Blue Cheese Salad
This inspiration for this recipe comes from two different places. First, when I was in college, I used to make a Radicchio and Endive salad. I can't find endive at HEB no matter how hard I look, so i don't make that one anymore. The second is from Thanksgiving when I was about 16 years old. My cousin
brought a blue cheese stuffed pear salad, and I have been obsessed with that flavor combination since. So, I put the two together.

The Recipe:

The Tools:

  • Sharp knife
  • Large Bowl

The Ingredients:

  • 1 Head of Radicchio - Chopped
  • 2 Pears - Sliced or Chopped
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Green Onions - Chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • White Balsamic Vinegar

The Method:

First, chop all of the veggies. For the radicchio, I like to cut it into fourths and cut out the white center part. For the pears, I stand the pear up and cut all for sides off around the middle. This is the best way I have found to get the core out of the pear. From there, cut the fourths into slices. For the green onions, I usually cut off just a little bit of the end. Chop the green onions until you use just a little bit of the white part. 

With all of the veggies chopped, combine in a bowl and add the blue cheese. I didn't measure it, but I like blue cheese, so I used a lot. I'll let you decide how much. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle the oil and vinegar on top. 

I paired this with a perfectly grilled steak with blue cheese crumbles on top. 

Happy Eating!
