The slightly bitter taste of endive and radicchio makes a nice contrast with the sweetness of the pear and the sweet pungency of cambozola.

Looks like something from a 5* restaurant and just as delicious. The mixture of both color, endive white and winer color radichio is a great combination. The addition of the gambozola cheese - which is from the blue cheese family - is the perfect match and gives a burst of flavor to each bites. For those who may not like pears, I could see that an apple would also do the trick. It was excellent.
