Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, 3 tablespoons vinegar, and 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Arrange pears and shallots in a single layer in a small roasting pan; pour honey mixture on top, and toss well to coat. Cook until pears and shallots are easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 30 minutes, turning them over halfway through.

  • Meanwhile, make vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, 3 tablespoons oil, and mustard; season with salt and pepper.

  • Remove roasted pears and shallots from roasting pan. Place pan over high heat; add the water, and cook, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon, until liquid is reduced by half. Whisk mixture into vinaigrette.

  • Combine frisee and endive in a large bowl; toss with vinaigrette. Divide among plates, and arrange pears, shallots, and walnuts alongside.

Cook's Notes

Toasting walnuts enhances their flavor. Spread nuts evenly on a baking sheet, and toast in a 350-degree oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.
