Chicory Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
A hearty, flavorful winter salad, lightened by the sweetness of honey and the tang of mustard.
1 cup pecans
1/4 cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
1/4 cup whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 head of escarole, leaves separated and torn
1 head of radicchio, leaves separated and torn
1/4 cup thinly sliced chives
Extra-virgin olive oil (for drizzling)
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Toast pecans on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until slightly darkened and fragrant, 6–8 minutes. Let cool; crush or coarsely chop.
- Whisk vinegar, mustard, and honey in a large bowl to combine. Add escarole, radicchio, chives, and half of the pecans. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and lots of pepper, and toss to coat. Top salad with remaining pecans.
