  • Summary

    Even pears that aren't quite ripe become extraordinarily delicious when roasted until sweet and caramelized. Here, they make the perfect counterpoint to a beautiful mix of bitter greens.

    Ingredients

    • 8 firm-ripe Bosc pears (4 lb), peeled, cored, and each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 small head chicory
    • 1 small head escarole
    • 1 small head radicchio
    • 1 bunch watercress, coarse stems discarded
    • 1 bunch mizuna, coarse stems discarded
    • 1 small head romaine
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon honey
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
