If you're hosting a dinner party, be sure to start with this pear frisée salad with candied walnuts and goat cheese. Eating your greens never tasted better!
Toss the pears in the dressing and let sit for at least 10 mins and up to 40. Place the frisée in a large bowl, add the pears, and enough dressing to coat. Toss gently.
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whip the egg white and water with a whisk until frothy. Whisk in the sugar, cardamom, and salt.
Whisk together the vinegar, dijon, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
