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

Delicious! I added my own twist to this by using the classic vinaigrette with honey in it. The little taste of honey gave this an extra little sweetness to marry with the bitter notes of the endives and radicchio...:)
