  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, crisp the bacon over medium heat for about 12 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Pour out all but 1 1/2 teaspoons of the drippings and reserve in a bowl. Return the pan to medium-high heat.

  • Add the pears, season with salt and cook until just beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl with the bread, pine nuts, bacon and shallots.

  • Whisk the vinegar into the reserved bacon drippings. Pour the dressing over the pear mixture, add the arugula and tarragon and toss.
