10 servings

This hearty green salad (pronounced SHA-toh) would be served as a first-course dish in Spain. We love how the rich vinaigrette and mixed salad greens help smooth the endive's bitter edge. If you can't find curly endive, substitute radicchio or escarole. Tomato and Garlic Toast would be a lovely accompaniment to this entertaining-worthy salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine Catalonian Pepper and Nut Sauce, 2 tablespoons hot water, and red wine vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Step 2

Combine endive and salad greens in a large bowl; toss gently to combine. Place about 1 1/3 cups greens on each of 10 plates. Drizzle each serving with about 2 teaspoons sauce mixture; divide olives and eggs evenly among salads. Serve immediately.

hi, xato is really delicious but it's usually made with salted anchoivies and chunks of salt cod. If you add some omellettes (potaotes amoleete and eggplants omelettes for instance) then the dish is called "xatonada"
