  • 3 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0 1/3 cup Olive Oil

Belgian endive is a crisp, very pale leafy green with a slightly bitter flavor. It discolors after being cut, so prepare it no more than a half an hour in advance. This recipe is also suitable for Induction after the first two weeks.
  1. Combine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in salad bowl. Add oil a slow, steady stream, whisking until dressing thickens. This can also be done in a blender or by combining all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shaking vigorously.
  2. Add sliced endive and radicchio and toss gently to coat. Divide among four plates and top with walnuts and blue cheese.
