Apple, Arugula & Endive Salad (Curly Endive)
This salad packs a punch of flavor with the endive and the peppery arugula, sweetness of the dressing and fruit, and the tangy goat cheese.
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon honey
Dash of salt
1/4 cup pecans
2 heads of curly endive, chopped
1 cup arugula
1 apple, sliced thin
1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled (optional)
To make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, juice and honey. Season with salt.
In a small sauté pan, toast the pecans over medium heat. Allow to cool.
Mix together the endive, arugula, apple and cherries (or cranberries) in a medium-size bowl. Toss with enough dressing to coat. Top with the pecans and goat cheese (optional).
