Cooking time: 5
  1. Wash the pears, cut them in half lengthwise and then into thin slices, removing the stem and core. Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent them discolouring.
  2. Toast the chopped almonds in a pan and let cool.
  3. Trim the radicchio, wash and dry. Cut the leaves in half and place them in 4 bowls.
  4. Arrange the slices of pear over the radicchio and sprinkle with the chopped almonds. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Prepare the vinaigrette now. Peel and finely chop the shallot. In a small bowl, mix the oil, vinegar, cinnamon, honey and shallots and stir with a fork until you have obtained a dense emulsion.
  6. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and serve accompanied with the croutons.
