Endive and Valencia Orange Salad

Recipe: food.com

Artistic yet easy.

For a vegan version substitute agave for the honey. I gave the salad more of a Middle Eastern flavor with the addition of rose water in the dressing. To avoid confusion, the endive called for in this recipe refers to the cone-shaped variety (looks like a bullet or small ear of corn.) I used a head of white endive with the maroon/purple colored outer leaves.


Servings: 4

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar (I used unseasoned brown rice vinegar)

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice

2 teaspoons honey, softened to whisk easier

½ teaspoon rose water, to taste (optional)

1 teaspoon grated orange zest

salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


6 radishes,  thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)

2  Valencia oranges

3 California endive,  sliced cross-wise into circles (about 1 1/2 cups)

2 stalks celery,  with the leaves (read *Note below)

6  dates, pitted and slivered (read Tip below)

¼ cup roasted pistacios (changed from pecans)

16 fresh mint leaves (fresh only!)
