  • 5 to 6 endives washed
  • ~3 ounces of aged cheese like comte gruyere, emmental, manchego - cut into small cubes
  • A handful of fresh parsley leaves coarsely chopped

For the red wine vinegar dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Cut and remove about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the endives and cut them into slices, about 2-3 inches each. You can also slice the hearts or centers into halves or quarters.
  • Rinse the sliced endives once more to eliminate any dirt left in between the layers and then dry using a lettuce spinner
  • For the red wine vinaigrette, combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well using a fork. You can also combine them in small jar with a tight lid and shake to mix well.
  • Place the endives in a salad bowl, add the aged cheese cubes, and the chopped parsley. Drizzle with the red wine vinegar dressing, mix/toss the salad, and serve immediately.
