Winter Greens with Roasted Pears and Pecorino

Winter greens aren't nearly as delicate as their summery counterparts, but when it comes to making cool weather salads they do quite nicely. This salad of Winter Greens with Roasted Pears and Pecorino adapted from Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan's Good Food to Share takes advantage of bitter greens like kale or sorrel, incorporating them into a hearty salad of sweetly roasted pears, pine nuts, and salty shaved percorino. Once dressed, the acid from the Champagne vinaigrette immediately begins to break down the greens ever so slightly, taking away some their chewiness but none of that great bitter flavor that pairs so well with the pears and pecorino.
