When I have some stuff in my refrigerator but am unsure what to make, I often just go online and search for ideas. With Cookstr you can search for an ingredient or two and lots of ideas come up.
I had some endive grown by Rich Collins of California Vegetable Specialties in Rio Vista. I also had some pears. Add some spinach, shallots, make a vinaigrette and you've got a great salad. This is so good.
