This palate cleansing Endive, Radish and Green Apple Salad pairs well with heavier holiday dishes.
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons olive oil
6 to 8 small radishes (about 8 oz. before trimming greens), thinly sliced
1 large Granny Smith apple, quartered, cored, thinly sliced
4 large Belgium endives, about 1 1/2 lb. total, trimmed, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
How to Make It
Whisk vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in vegetable and olive oils, whisking constantly. Add radishes and apple. Toss well to prevent discoloration. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (Salad may be made up to 3 hours ahead to this point.)
Just before serving, add endive and toss well to coat. Serve cold.
