Curly Endive Salad with Celery, Apple and Candied Pecans

Curly Endive Salad may not have quite the same ring as say a Ceasar salad, but is so darn tasty and fast to assemble, I think I will have you convinced from that first bite.

Dress with this easy vinaigrette or your dressing of choice and you’ve crunchy, hydrating, and damn delish.

Remove any bruised outer leaves of a large head of endive and discard.

Wash the inner leaves and lay on paper towels. Tear the leaves by hand into a small bowl with or without the ribs.

Squeeze some lemon juice over the leaves and use a wooden spoon to toss to coat.

Using a sharp kitchen knife, thinly slice the celery ribs and leaves on a severe angle.

Add to a large salad bowl (separate from the leaves) then slice the apple into thin slices as well.

Hold a handful of whole candied pecans out as garnish while chopping the remainder with a sharp kitchen knife and adding to the bowl with the celery and apple.
