Simple Endive Salad for Fall

November 6th, 2014

Buying vegetables that are in-season are great for your dress size and your budget. Endive, which is closely related to the chicory family, is a tasty fall vegetable that you can prepare raw or cooked. These leafy greens are packed with vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene. Endive has a crisp, clean taste that complements both savory and sweet dishes.

Going into the holiday season, we are always seeking healthy snacks to satisfy that persistent sweet tooth. This simple endive salad is the perfect, light sweet treat that promises to be forgiving on that dress size you’ve worked so hard to maintain.
