My mother used to make lovely salads with endives. I grew to love this bitter leaf. I have found it is the perfect ceasar salad leaf. You can substitute with your own favorite crunchy leaves.
Old gouda cheese is a good strong old and hardy cheese to replace Parmesan in this recipe.
Dutch Ceasar Salad
- Dressing (for multiple salads):
- 1 tbsp mayonaise
- 1 tsp mustard
- 50 ml butter milk
- 1 pinch of dried chili
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 cruched garlic clove
- half a bunch of endives
- 150 grams of grated old Gouda
- 1 crouton recipe
Mix all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar. Shake the jar to combine the ingredients. You can make this dressing up to 4 days in advance and keep the dressing in the fridge in a jar or container. Preferably you let the dressing stand for at least 30 mins to let the flavors come together.
Clean your endives. Slives the leaves into chunky pieces.
Mix your ingredients at the last moment for a crunchy salad. Use the amount of dressing you prefer, I like a thin coating on my leaves.
