belgian endive salad
If we believe the Belgian legend, endives were discovered by a peasant who hid his chicory harvest in a dark cellar in a Brussels village, in a bid to avoid paying taxes on it. Thank you, friend! I’ll never tire of endive’s perfect union with walnuts, blue cheese and a few scattered mint leaves. Oh, you robust yet slimming and antioxidant vegetable, how I love you!
