Spago is featuring an endive and spring vegetable salad, with marinated baby artichokes, fava beans, asparagus, snap peas, shaved fennel, feta cheese, black olives and toasted pine nuts.
When buying Belgian endive, look for large stalks that are creamy white, shading to pale yellow at the tips. Red stalks are almost a burgundy-red. Endive is grown from roots that are “forced” like a flower to bud in dark growing rooms, so they never touch dirt and therefore do not need to be washed. You can wipe the leaves with a damp paper towel if you like.
