Bistro-style red endive salad


Bistro-style red endive salad
Have you tried red Belgian endives? They are similar in size to the more common white sort, just as crunchy, but slightly less bitter.

They are the main feature in this salad inspired by French bistro cuisine: combined with chopped hard-boiled eggs, fried ham and croutons, in a rémoulade dressing.
