Endive and Orange Salad

endive orange salad

Yes, we are slowly transitioning towards summer and it feels so good. I had some endive and orange salad leftover when I got home from the beach yesterday and after an afternoon of sun it was so light and refreshing everything I wanted and needed at that moment. It’s good for two people as a salad meal or for four as a side dish with some grilled meat and another side. I used the citrus vinaigrette again that made its first appearance in the tuna patties recipe to complete it and take it to a higher level.

Last week I wrote all about how the endive is grown and how to select the perfect endive so you don’t get stuck with a super bitter one. Find all those tips in the pan roasted endive post which I’ve linked for you. I’m going to keep it short today because it’s gearing up to be a beautiful day here in the Netherlands with 26 degrees and I’m ready to go play outside. I still don’t know when I’ll be able to visit my island so I am basking in all the sunlight I can get here during these Spring/Summer months. What are your plans for today?
