Reviews for Curly Endive Salad
"Very good salad. I used half curly and half Belgian endive. I needed to use a little more oil and vinegar since the fresh herbs seemed to soak up the liquid."
"I love curly endive so I'm always delighted to find a new way to use it. This recipe is deliciously different. It took a couple of times for my husband to get used to its taste, but now he specifically requests it!"
