Belgian Endive Salad with Avocado and Orange

Labels: { , , }

This is basically a clean-out-fridge salad. So depending on what whatsoever greens or leftover in the fridge, you can mix and match so many different ingredients to make delicious and light meals.

  • 50 g Plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Walnut oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 2/3 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Orange peel, finely grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 head Belgian endive
  • 2 Oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/2 Avocado, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 10 Black olives, cut into rings
  • 5 Grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 Small red onion, cut into thin strips
  1. Whisk together plain yogurt, walnut oil, mustard, honey, and red wine vinegar until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until ready for use.
  2. Cut the ends off endives, separating leaves. Arrange Belgian endive, orange sections and avocado slices in a serving bowl. Scatter with the olive rings, grape tomato halves, and onion strips. Drizzle the dressing over and serve with some bread.

What a lively medley of veggies and fruits, Angie. Looks refreshing full of life. Beautiful click.

Barbara 27/12/10 14:13

Such a lovely presentation, Angie. And I love the walnut oil in the dressing. Endive is a favorite of mine; I use it in nearly every salad I make.

I like these clean out the fridge salads, because it needs to get done more often. The shell of endives is a beautiful arrangement.

Marvellous salad, sooo beautiful!

Roxan 27/12/10 21:19

Angie, beautiful presentation! I've tried making salads pretty like that but i've never been successful. I should probably just take one of your salads and replicate it.

Tanantha @ I Just Love My Apron 27/12/10 21:35

Even though you used what you had left in the fridge, i have to say this salad looks so appetizing! yogurt and walnut oil are interesting. Love your presentation!

What a delectable concoction. I recently discovered that eating with endive leaves makes salad infinitely more fun. I know, a fun salad right?

Carol 28/12/10 04:23

Your salad looks fantastic! I love everything you have in there, and it's done up beautifully!

Beautiful! I love your recipes - one after another - you never disappoint!

denise @ quickies on the dinner table 28/12/10 06:58

Hi Angie - hope you had a lovely Christmas and are gearing up for a fabulous New Year!

I know this is a "clean the fridge out" recipe, but, as I have both oranges and avocados at the moment, I'm going to take this as a sign ;)

Happy New Year dear!!!

Beautiful presentation! Looks like a big flower! :D

OohLookBel 28/12/10 11:39

Your salad is so pretty - you would not think that it's part of a fridge cleanout! And it would certainly make me eat more vegetables, and that's a good thing =)

I'm craving a giant salad just like this Angie, after all the heavy foods and sweet I've been eating! The dressing sounds extra yummy too. Hope you had a great Christmas - Happy New Year!

Rumana Rawat 28/12/10 17:46

What a lovely presentation... i love it:)

Stella 28/12/10 18:18

Whoa! This looks so pretty-there's nothing like a good salad too. So fresh and so clean (smile) clean...
I do always wonder about salads that have orange and olive in them-it seems strange to me, but some of the things I thought were strange at one time are some of my favorites now. Hmm...

sweetlife 28/12/10 19:32

a beautiful salad, love the combo of flavors and great way to clean the fridge!!


Anonymous 28/12/10 20:12

What a beautiful presentation the endive makes! The salad and dressing sound delicious and just what I need after all of the holiday indulgences.

A Canadian Foodie 29/12/10 19:24

What a beautiful salad, Angie! What I love about you is the wide range of culinary expertise you have. You are the master of all things bread - and yet, when you do a salad - it is with a special nut oil - and well thought out. Nothing ordinary, at all. Continually a complex flavour party here! Your family is so fortunate!
Happy New Year to you and your family! I cannot wait to hear how you bring it in!

Anonymous 29/12/10 20:14

I don't think I've ever seen a "clean out the fridge" dish as gorgeous as this salad! Fresh and flavorfu and presented beautifully. Happy New Year, Angie!

Katy 30/12/10 01:52

Avocado and oranges, two of my favorite ingredients combined in a beautiful salad. I would have to have this whole bowl to myself :)

Wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year!

Elisabeth 30/12/10 02:58

Endive salads are so pretty, and add so much flair to any salads, but yours is a "work of art" that it's so pretty, yet so yummy, at the same time.
I've done many different designs with the endive, but never did one like yours.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover 30/12/10 07:23

you have a right attitude, no waste and appreciate all foods that we have. This salad look nice and simple. Happy New Year to you and all at home.

dining tables 30/12/10 13:39

The salad looks simple enough to prepare. Enjoying your clicks!

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets 30/12/10 19:18

The endive leaves make this look so elegant. I only wish my clean-out-the-fridge dishes ever looked so good ;p. Happy New Year!

tasteofbeirut 1/1/11 17:34

I just had an endive salad recently and was reminded of how much I love endives! Lovely, bittersweet and crispy.
