Sauteed Pears, Bacon, and Radicchio

Ingredients

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

 

Instructions

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.
