Beautiful, Healthful Belgian Endive Salad


The darker the color of the endive, the more nutritious it is. Beta-carotene is the chief disease-fighting nutrient found in the darker-colored greens.

As an antioxidant endive battles certain cancers, heart disease, and cataracts.  Dark-green endive also indicates the presence of folic acid, which helps prevent neural-tube birth defects in the beginning stages of pregnancy.

Researchers are uncovering other important contributions folic acid has to offer to your well-being, like its role in the prevention of heart disease and inflammation. Most salad greens, including endive are also notable sources of vitamin C, potassium and fiber.
