Delicious blend of flavors!!
Escarole and Fennel Salad with Pears and Gruyère
Escarole has a pleasant bitterness and sturdy leaves that can withstand being tossed in dressing and still look appealing when passed around the table. If you can't find almond oil, try hazelnut or walnut oil. Sprinkle with black pepper, if desired.
