Gala Apple, Endive, & Arugula Salad with Fig Vinaigrette
While browsing the shelves of our local organic food market, I came upon THIS amazing fig vinegar.
I couldn't wait to get home to taste it and use it in a salad.
It has the most wonderful taste - sweet and tart. It is perfection!
Lately, I've been craving an apple salad. Luckily, I found couple of Gala apples in my refrigerator.
I also found some other ingredients to make a perfect, healthy and delicious salad.
Here's what I used ...
For 2 people
1 gala apple, sliced paper thin
2 radishes, sliced paper thin
1 endive, washed
1 cup Arugula
Goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons Fig vinegar
4 Tablespoons olive oil
In a bowl, combine garlic and mustard.
Add vinegar and whisk.
Continue to whisk and slowly add oil.
Season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, add arugula and slices of radishes.
Drizzle vinaigrette and toss to combine.
On a dinner plate, place arugula mix.
Arrange on top, 6 leaves of endive.
Arrange Apple slices on top of endive.
Drizzle vinaigrette all over the salad.
Toss in some pine nuts. and Enjoy!
