Comtoise endive salad


Comtoise endive salad
This endive salad has a Comtoise twist as a change from the usual pairing of endives with walnuts.

The endives are finely sliced, mixed with fried smoked bacon, diced Comté cheese and a little chopped parsley, then dessed with a good vinaigrette.

Tip the lardons and their cooking fat into the endives. Add the diced Comté, the chopped parsley and 15 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette).

Mix well and it's ready.

Remarks

If you don't have Comté, use Gruyère or another similar cheese instead.

It is not essential to include the bacon fat. This can be left out if you prefer, though the salad will have less flavour.

Don't worry if your bacon is unsmoked, though do try to use it to keep with the "Comtois" spirit.
