  • 2 medium Belgian endives
  • 4-6 radishes
  • 1 apple
  • parmesan or grana pieces to taste
  • 1 handful almonds
  • ½ orange (only the juice)
  • ½ tsp honey
  • ½ tsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch ground pepper


Instructions Belgian endive salad with orange dressing

  • To prepare this salad, wash, peel and core the apple. Wash the radishes and remove the tips. Take the endive and remove any bruised outer leaves. Cut away the slightly harder base.
  • Using a very sharp knife or mandolin cutter, cut the endive into thin strips. Slice both the apple and radishes as thinly as possible and add them to the endive strips. Add the cheese pieces and a handful of chopped almonds.
  • In a small cup or bowl mix the juice from half of a freshly squeezed orange, a pinch of salt, a spoonful of oil, half a teaspoon of mustard and half a teaspoon of honey. Mix everything vigorously to melt the honey and combine all the ingredients.
  • Sprinkle your salad with freshly ground pepper to taste. Add the prepared sauce, mix and serve.
