Endive Salad


Endive Salad

Add a superfood to your menu with this French endive salad. By adding fresh Dijon mustard and olive oil, this dish will keep you healthy while still tasting wonderful! Serve it as an appetizer or first course.  It's easy to make, impressive, and has been approved by kids.

Dijon Sauce


Fan the endive leaves on a plate and top with walnut pieces, and small chunks of blue cheese.

Drizzle with Dijon sauce.

A little sauce goes a long way, so a light drizzle is all that is needed.

You can eat this salad with a fork and knife for a first course or serve it as finger food for an appetizer. 



Adding a few fresh rosemary leaves adds another layer of flavor and extra nutrients, which is delicious.  A few parsley leaves can also be added for color and nutrients.

This is simple and fast to make, but on a day when you want to put in as little effort as possible, you can place everything on a serving dish and let everyone make their own.

These endive leaves are also a fabulous dish to serve for entertaining, either as a first course or apéritif before dinner.

Many of the recipes I share have guidelines rather than exact measurements, since I often cook "au pif" as we say in France, meaning by feel.  It is possible to pull together great meals quickly without relying on recipes when you cook by feel, or Kitchen Intuition as I call it.  You can write to me anytime if you have questions.
