If you can find them, use 3 bright red endives and 6 light yellow. This is a wonderful salad for a first course, followed by Grilled Veal Chops with Mushroom-Leek Compote. I like to serve this salad after the main course since it has all the components for a cheese and fruit course.
1. In a small bowl, whisk all the dressing ingredients together.
2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast for 7 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and aromatic. Set aside.
3. In a salad bowl, combine the endive, pears, and toasted pecans. Sprinkle the cheese over. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
4. To serve, drizzle the dressing over all and toss to mix well.
This can be prepared through Step 3 up to 4 hours ahead, covered, and refrigerated.
