Strawberry and Endive Salad

Valentina

This salad covers all the bases: bitter, sweet, and savory. Juicy strawberries are a surprisingly good match to earthy blue cheese and truffled almonds. A quick 4-ingredient vinaigrette pulls it all together and turns this into a dish you'd expect to find in a nouveau-cuisine restaurant. But don't be fooled, this salad takes only minutes to prepare.

    Salad
  • 6 small Belgian endive spears (see notes)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 33333333/100000000 cup truffled almonds (see notes)
  • 33333333/100000000 cup blue cheese, crumbled Maple Vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Stir together all of the vinaigrette ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Step 2: Gently remove the spear leaves from the endives. Rinse and dry them well, as dirt can hide in the inner leaves.
  3. Step 3: Toss the endive leaves in a splash of the vinaigrette. Assemble the leaves on a large platter and scatter the strawberries, blue cheese, and almonds on top. Drizzle with additional vinaigrette. Note: you could also chop the leaves, though the whole leaves make a pretty presentation.
  4. Serve: Enjoy this salad chilled or at room temperature. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Truffled almonds can be found in many grocery stores (including Trader Joe's), specialty stores, and online. Alternatively, toss roasted blanched almonds in a little truffle oil until well-coated. You could also add a little drizzle of truffle oil over the salad for extra truffle flavor.

Every 6 endives may also be substituted with 1 small head of another lettuce from the chicory family. Options include Belgian endive, curly endive (sometimes called frisee), escarole, and radicchio.
