“This is a wonderful recipe by Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa. It is from her book "Barefoot in Paris". We paid $9.95 each for a lesser endive salad a few nights ago, so I vowed to find one to make at home and boy, did we love this!! I couldn't wait to share, and hope you like it! (Please note: this recipe has one raw egg yolk...)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim off the core end of each head of endive and slice it in half lengthwise.
  2. Cut out the cores, separate the leaves, and place 1 1/2 to 2 heads of endive on each plate.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, egg yolk, salt and pepper.
  4. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to make an emulsion.
  5. Toss the pears with some vinaigrette and place on the endive.
  6. Drizzle the remaining vinaigrette over the endive leaves to moisten them.
  7. Crumble the Roquefort onto the endive.
  8. Sprinkle with walnuts and serve at room temperature.
  9. Enjoy!
