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.
Onion Handling:
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.
Honey Quality:
Check the freshness and quality of honey. If it has crystallized, gently warm it to restore its liquid consistency.
Oil Quality:
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.
