Curly endive salad
Tear the curly endive into neat pieces, and put in a large salad bowl. Scatter the onion over.
Whisk together the lemon zest, juice, honey, oil and 2 teaspoons water. Season with salt and pepper, and whisk again.
Drizzle the dressing over the endive, and serve.
Points to keep in mind
Fresh Curly Endive:
Ensure the curly endive is fresh and free from wilted or discolored leaves. Wash it thoroughly to remove any dirt or contaminants.
Proper Tearing Technique:
Use a gentle tearing technique to avoid bruising or damaging the leaves while tearing the curly endive into pieces.
Handle and chop the onion carefully to avoid eye irritation. Use proper cutting techniques and consider wearing protective eyewear if necessary.
Lemon Zest and Juice:
Use fresh lemons for zest and juice. Wash and scrub lemons before zesting to remove any wax or residue.
Check the freshness and quality of honey. If it has crystallized, gently warm it to restore its liquid consistency.
Use a high-quality oil, such as extra virgin olive oil, for the dressing. Store oil in a cool, dark place to prevent it from becoming rancid.
