    Apple & Endive Salad – Serves 2

    Apple & Endive Salad – Serves 2


    I just love the winter flavors of fresh, crisp apples, walnuts and endive mixed with some delicious Gorgonzola cheese.  Toss this salad with some greens for a holiday salad or add some turkey from Thanksgiving for a scrumptious lunch or dinner.  Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    • For the dressing:  1 T. olive oil, 1 T. white balsamic vinegar and ½ teaspoon Napa Valley Meritage seasoning.
    • 3 heads of Endive lettuce (best price at Trader Joe’s)
    • 1 small red apple, diced with skin left on
    • 5 walnut halves, chopped, about a half an ounce
    • ¼ cup gorgonzola or bleu cheese crumbles
    • 2 cups of lettuce (Arugula, Romaine, or Butter leaf)
    • * Optional 9 ounces shredded or cubed cooked turkey or other protein 

    Instructions:

    Mix the salad dressing with all the ingredients together except for the greens. Toss some salt and pepper in to taste. Let the flavors mingle for about 5 minutes; then add the greens.  It’s that simple!  You are ready to enjoy a delicious autumn flavored lunch or dinner.
