Endive and Arugula Salad
I created this salad for friends last night and it went over very well, so I thought I'd share it. I won't put the nutritional info here since you can play with the ingredients to your heart's content. The slight bitterness of the endive and shallot are offset by the sweetness of the mandarin orange and gala apple. Arugula brings that peppery taste and a few shaves of grana padano adds just the right amount of fat (yes, I said 'fat'. There's nothing wrong with dietary fat as we need it to survive. It's the sugar without fiber that you have to avoid.) If you replace the apple with a pear, you'll have even more fiber in this one.
I finished it with a drizzle of black cherry infused balsamic vinegar. After taking the picture, I hit it with a touch of lemon infused olive oil which put it over the top in the flavor department. Enjoy!
