At the end of a holiday dinner, cookbook author Deborah Madison likes to serve a big refreshing salad, passed around at the table. This one is based on a recipe in her her book Vegetable Literacy (Ten Speed Press, 2013).

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine shallot, salt, and vinegar in a bowl and let stand 10 minutes. Whisk in mustard and 3 tbsp. oil and taste. If the vinaigrette is too sharp, whisk in more oil.

Step 2

Toss endive gently with vinaigrette and chives. Arrange leaves in a large bowl or on a platter, sprinkling in blue cheese as you go so it's evenly distributed.

Step 3

*Find at well-stocked grocery stores.

Step 4

Make ahead: Vinaigrette, up to 1 day.
