  • 6 shallots (about 1 oz. each), peeled
  • About 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 Granny Smith or Newtown Pippin apples (1 lb. total), rinsed
  • 1 pound white Belgian endive (see notes)
  • 1 pound red Belgian endive or red radicchio (see notes)
  • 2/3 pound Stilton cheese, crumbled
  • Salt and pepper


  1. 1. In an 8- or 9-inch-wide pan, mix shallots with about 1 teaspoon olive oil. Bake in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, until shallots are slightly browned and barely tender when pierced, about 40 minutes (20 to 25 minutes in a convection oven). When cool enough to touch, finely chop.
  2. 2. In a wide bowl, mix shallots, 1/2 cup olive oil, vinegar, mustard, and sugar. Peel apples, quarter, core, and cut lengthwise into 1/8-inch slivers. Add to bowl and mix with dressing.
  3. 3. Cut white and red Belgian endive lengthwise into 1/8-inch-wide slices. Add endive and cheese to bowl. Mix gently, and season salad to taste with salt and pepper.
