Frisée Salad with Maple-Bacon Vinaigrette

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Cindy Barr, Mary Lyn Hill Jenkins

Bitter greens like radicchio and endive provide a pleasant counterpoint to the sweet, slightly smoky dressing, while wispy, curly frisée gives the dish body. You can prepare the salad dressing up to a day ahead and reheat it to serve. But don't dress the salad until the last minute so the greens stay crisp.
