This salad hits a lot of flavorful notes; sweet fruit, earthy nuts, refreshing mint, and slight bitterness from Belgian endive. Though you can buy Belgian endive year-round, it peaks between November and April.
2 tablespoons torn mint leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons grated tangelo rind
1 tablespoon fresh tangelo juice
2 teaspoons thinly sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon Champagne vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons walnut oil
4 cups baby spinach leaves
3/4 cup sliced peeled tangelo
2 heads Belgian endive, halved and thinly sliced
1/3 cup walnuts, toasted
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Gradually add walnut oil, stirring constantly with a whisk.
Combine spinach, tangelo slices, and endive in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad, tossing to coat. Arrange 1 cup salad on each of 6 salad plates, and sprinkle evenly with walnuts and black pepper. Serve immediately.
