Bonjour mes belles,
Today's recipe come from one of my favorite recipe books; "The Skinny French Kitchen".
This is a versatile recipe and makes for a great starter or a healthy and refreshing lunch.
Endive, walnut and apple salad with
177 calories per serving
2 small sweet apples (such as Pink Lady)
freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
3 heads white chicory, washed
80g fresh walnuts, roughly chopped
a few chives, snipped, for garnish
For the Roquefort dressing:
1 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Cut the apples into quarters, core them and slice them very finely. Set them aside on a big plate and squeeze the lemon juice over. Coat them evenly to prevent discolouration.
In a small bowl, mash together the dressing ingredients with the back of a spoon. If the mixture is too stiff, loosen it with a little water until you reach a consistency like single cream.
Toss the chicory leaves and apple slices in a big bowl with the dressing until evenly coated.
Pile the dressed leaves and apple slices on to a large plate. Scatter the walnuts and the chopped chives over.
Serve with a chunk of wholegrain bread.
très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x
