1 Tbsp whole grain mustard
3 Tbsp olive oil
8 slices bacon, chopped
1 large head radicchio, shredded
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
2 Tbsp aged balsamic vinegar
4 firm-ripe pears, thickly sliced and seeded
½ cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 10-12 minutes. Remove bacon from the skillet with a slotted spoon, leaving about 1 Tbsp fat in the skillet.
3. Add pears and radicchio and cook over medium-high heat, stirring gently, until golden brown and just starting to soften, 5-7 minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper; transfer to a platter.
4. Drizzle dressing over pear mixture and sprinkle with bacon, hazelnuts, and chives. Serve immediately.
