Preparation steps

1.
For Vinaigrette:
2.
In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, honey, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until combined well.
3.
For Salad:
4.
Cook pancetta in oil in a heavy skillet, set over moderate heat, turning frequently, until just crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Break or cut into bite-size pieces.
5.
Saute pear slices in pancetta drippings for 1 to 2 minutes, until just golden, but still firm.
6.
Divide greens, pancetta, sliced pears and sliced cheese evenly among plates. Drizzle with vinaigrette and sprinkle with hazelnuts and croutons. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
