#WCW What's Cookin' Wednesday: Endive Salad fit for a BBQ!


Looking for a great salad to take to your next backyard bbq? Try this, made with Endive—branch out and try a different type of lettuce this week!! Endive is one of the very low calorie leafy vegetables. It has Vitamin A, B complex and minerals like manganese, copper, iron and potassium! 

*3 medium endive heads-thinly sliced crosswise
*2 medium Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp apples-peeled, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
*½ cup roasted and salted pistachio nuts-shelled and chopped(I buy them already shelled in the bulk section of my local store and then throw them in my food processor to chop)
*Ground black pepper
*Sea Salt
*¼ cup Honey Mustard dressing (here’s a much healthier alternative to the store bought variety!)
                        3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
                        2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
                        2 tbsp honey(local is the best!)
                        2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
                        ¼ tsp salt
                        Freshly ground black pepper 
            Just whisk all that together in a bowl until combined. Use the dressing right away or put in a tightly sealed jar for up to 3 days-shake well before serving.

So, after you’ve gotten all of your healthy ingredients and made your delicious preservative free, sugar free honey mustard dressing….you can make this delicious summer time salad!
Combine the endive and apple slices in a bowl. Add dressing, enough to suit your taste, and gently toss together. Season with salt and pepper, top with the pistachio nuts before serving. 
Enjoy!
