Frisée Salad with Blue Cheese, Avocado and Soft-boiled Eggs

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Frisée (pronounced "free-ZAY") is a variation of endive. It has a slightly bitter flavour, similar to radicchio, or Belgian endive, but a lot milder.
This keto friendly, gluten-free, deliciously healthy and different salad is full of flavour and texture and makes a stunning salad starter for any festive occasion or as a light, yet satisfying workday dinner. If you don't find this distinctive curly lettuce in your grocery store, just pick up some salad mixes, like mesclun or your favourite mix of baby greens.
I have added wasabi (Japanese horseradish) for some heat and a bit of garden herbs for the freshness to the homemade mayonnaise. Feel free to use your favourite salad dressing instead.

SaladWasabi Herb Mayonnaise
  • 3 Eggs, medium
  • 1/2 head Frisée
  • 50 g Radicchio, thinly sliced
  • 1 Red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 Avocado
  • 100 g Blue cheese, cubed or crumbled
  • 1-2 Apricot, sliced, optional
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise, homemade or storebought
  • 2 tsp Wasabi paste
  • 2 tbsp Fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used a mix of cilantro and basil)
  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for 6 minutes for soft-cooked. Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Blend all the ingredients together. Chill until ready for use.
  3. Trim the root end from the frisée and coarsely chop the frisée. Thinly shred the radicchio. Cut the red onion in half and thinly slice. Cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into bite-size pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the frisée, radicchio, red onion, avocado, and blue cheese. Transfer the salad to individual plates and top with the eggs and apricot slices if using. Serve with wasabi herb mayonnaise. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

This really is an interesting salad. All the more interesting as you get into the details: I love avocado in a salad. But blue cheese, apricot, and wasabi? Wow!

Looks like a perfect meal for a hot summer day!

Mae Travels 4/7/20 17:38

In French cafes there are often one or more salads with frisée lettuce — many great combinations. I’ve never seen one with avocado and apricots, though, which sounds like a good idea.

be well... mae at

What a beautiful salad!!! Now if I can find some decent apricots, I'd love to make it!! Or I might have to sub peaches, but I bet it's yummy either way!

Iwona 5/7/20 08:28

Yummy and healthy salad :)

abasozora 5/7/20 08:40

Evi Erlinda 6/7/20 00:16

It is the best and super healthy salad! I love avocado and wasabi, they so good, even more by adding fresee, blue cheese, and hard boiled eggs.

Nammi 6/7/20 06:30

I am not a big fan of blue cheese but that salad looks awesome

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 6/7/20 23:07

This sounds light a delightful salad, Angie! I love the kick of Wasabi in the dressing and soft boiled eggs any day! I wish it weren't so hard to find good frisee here but I'm maybe I could substitute arugula!

Heidi | The Frugal Girls 7/7/20 01:56

I loved how you added Wasabi and fresh herbs to your salad. So tasty fun!

Balvinder 7/7/20 02:36

This is a mouth watering looking salad. I love the touch of wasabi in the dressing.

What a beautiful salad dear Angie. I would enjoy this for a light dinner during the hot summer. xoxo Catherine

Raymund 7/7/20 21:56

Love this salad, plus the presentation is so nice

tigerfish 8/7/20 02:50

The apricot slices will be sweet bonus to the lovely frisee blue cheese salad. I like bitter salad mixes with frisee, radicchio, endive and they don't come cheap (more expensive than the regular mix).

Torviewtoronto 8/7/20 04:51

this salad looks beautiful adding wasabi paste sounds good. We usually add sriracha sauce with mayonnaise.

Marcelle 10/7/20 15:27

Dinner salads are one of my best dinner plans right now, I'll have to add this into the mix. Wasabi dressing?? Yes, please!

Anonymous 14/7/20 21:04

That salad looks fantastic and so pretty too. I've made vegan wasabi mayonnaise a few times, but what a lovely idea to use it as a salad dressing. Scrumptious.

Noob Cook 29/7/20 15:39

The wasabi definitely gives a kick to the salad dressing. I heart pretty salads like this one.
