A few days ago, I invented these lovely salads & served them with a simple home-made olive oil-white wine vinegar dressing!
Recipe: For 2 persons
For the salad:
2 big Belgian endives (witlof), washed, cleaned, big hard core removed, finely shredded/ 1 endive per plate
2 handfuls snipped fresh garden cress/ 1 handful per plate
1 big carrot, peeled & shredded into longer slices, see photo above/ 1/2 carrot per plate
2 juicy apples, washed, cored, sliced thinly / 1 apple per plate
12 juicy raspberries or other red fruit / 6 per plate
For the dressing:
4 tablespoons of a fruity extra virgin olive oil, the best one you have
1 + 1/2 tablespoon of a good quality white wine vinegar
- Arrange each plate with the top ingredients. Arrange them the way you like it, see photo!
- Make your dressing. Take a smaller jam pot & add olive oil, white wine vinegar, a pinch or 2 of sea salt & some grins of black pepper. Place fitted lid on & shake jam pot & few times up & down. Taste. It must taste super!
- Drizzle some of your dressing over the top of each plate, in a circle! Leave to stand for 5 minutes & dig in, best with a loved one! Enjoy! 🙂 Simple but excellent flavours!
