Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Belgian Endive, Cucumber, and Olive Salad

If you don’t eat Belgian endive regularly please keep reading because you should; They’re incredibly satisfying, they’re healthy, they last longer and are easier to prep than most lettuces, and they’re available year around. With a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and kosher salt they taste as good on their own as they do with cucumbers, olives, potatoes, mint, watercress, apples, radicchio, arugula, oranges, tomatoes, avocado or bacon…just to name a few.

If you already eat endive you know what I’m talking about, and if you don’t, then it’s a great time to start. Figure about one endive per person, slice them to about a half an inch from the base, and toss with your ingredients and dressing of choice.
