It's a wonderful small salad to start of a summer meal. I love belgian endives, walnuts and blue cheese but the piece de' resistance' was the dressing. It was to die for... I made it the night before my Mother's day dinner party and it had time to combine and mature. So good! Plus the way the delicate leaves and little droplets of dates, nuts and blue cheese looks so elegant and yet it was so easy - just remember to maybe have someone else watch the nuts roasting while you are cooking an extravagent feast. They were a little crispy ;)
My guests were so intrigued by this salad that they insisted on "helping" which meant that they joined me in the kitchen, assembled and ate each delicious leaf as they created them. They loved the flavors that, once combined, were absolutely addictive. Thank you for an incredibly simple, fabulous salad.
Thanks for these "French Tacos". I normally find endive too bitter to enjoy, however, you can't go wrong with the combination of blue cheese and walnuts. It's one of my favorites, so I thought I'd give it a try. The dates add a nice touch of sweetness. It's a great combination of flavors, with the endive offering a nice, crunchy texture.
Wow, this was so good and deserves it 100% rating. Only change I made was to use pecans as hubby doesn't like walnuts. We have salad every evening and this was a great change. I will be serving this salad for sure at my next dinner party. Thanks Dawn for another great recipe.
So glad you like them. I have to say they are one of my favorites as well. I have nicknamed them "French Tacos"...
I love to make them for people, just to see the look on their faces when they bite into them. Everyone is usually around when I am assembling them and they are always so surprised as to how easy and tasty they are.
I made the salad and coconut squash soup for a progressive diner for 6 of our Neighbours here in Canada, and would like to say it was a great success! Also like to say thank you for the great recipes and lessons, it has taken my cooking to a great new level, thanks again.
O-o-o-h, what a wonderful flavor and different taste each item brings out! The Dijon Vinaigrette (we used white wine) is perfect for this. Each bite is a different experience. We have has this three times this week! This recipe will be one of my top ten, for sure.
