Red Belgian Endive Salad with Pomegranate and Walnuts

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

A vibrantly purple and festive salad that combines red Belgian endives, pomegranate seeds, toasted walnuts, mint leaves and a honey Dijon mustard vinaigrette. Crumble some strong blue cheese over if desired. It's easy to make, delicious, nutritious and will liven up any meal.

  • 100 g Walnuts, toasted
  • 2 head Red Belgian endive or 1 large radicchio, leaves separated
  • 50 g Pomegranate seeds
  • A handful of mint leaves, torn
  • 1 clove Garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Honey Dijon mustard
  • 1 Lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tsp White wine vinegar
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Walnut oil
  • 80 ml Extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
  1. Toast the walnuts in a dry pan until they smell nutty. Cool, then roughly crush with clean hands.
  2. To make the dressing, put the garlic, mustard, lemon juice, vinegar and some seasoning into a bowl, and mix well, then slowly add the walnut oil and olive oil, whisking all the time, to create a thick emulsion.
  3. Generously dress the leaves in the dressing so that all the leaves are coated. Assemble the dressed leaves on a plate so that they are ready to catch the pomegranate seeds and walnuts. Scatter over the pomegranate seeds, crushed walnuts, mint and lemon zest, and drizzle with some extra olive oil, if you like.

Can't get more excited about spring salads than this one! WOW

La escarola roja no la utilizo, pero sí la verde con granada, nos gusta mucho. Y en cuanto a la vinagreta, la encuentro muy buena, sencilla y asequible a los ingredientes normales que tenemos en casa.

Angie; no creo encontrar aquí escarola roja. Con qué otro vegetal puede sustituirse? Endibias, repollo...?
