Citrus Dijon Salad

This chilly summer salad makes endive lettuce come alive. A dash of Dijon mustard, a pinch of cumin, all crowned with wedges of ruby red grapefruit.

Here’s your shopping list:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup walnuts

8 heads Belgian endive

2 red grapefruits, peeled and sectioned

3 easy steps:

1. Place walnuts in a single layer in a shallow microwavable pan. Microwave at high heat for 1 minute.

2. Whisk together the first 6 ingredients.

3. Dispose of outer leaves of the endive. Rinse with cold water, and dab dry. Cut each endive head diagonally into 1/2-inch slices, and place in a serving bowl. Add walnuts and Dijon dressing. Toss to coat. Top with grapefruit. Serve with any remaining dressing.
