Yayyyyy, it’s summer, so naturally there’s another salad for my collection – one of my favourites: my quick & easy Endive Salad (gluten-free) with radish & avo. Also, salads are usually gluten-free, I mean unless you add croutons or similar. So it really is a no-brainer, to eat salad when you’re living gluten-free.
During summer, I eat salad almost every day – it’s light & fresh, fighting the summer heat. There’s one little downside to eating that much salad though – I have to invent new salads allllll the time, as I get bored of salad way to easy.
Quick & Easy Endive Salad (gluten-free)
- 4 endive salads
- 10 radishes
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 feta cheese
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 tsp mustard
- 6 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 lemon (juice)
- 1 tbsp balsamico vinagre
- salt & pepper
- Take the endives and cut small rings (about 1 cm), starting at the top of the salad. Once you reach the bottom, make sure to take out the stalk, as it's quite bitter & hard. Wash the salad & place into a salad bowl.
- Next, slice the radish rather thin and also add to the salad bowl. Cut the avocado into little squares (roughly 1cmx1cm) and add to the bowl as well.
- Last, but not least, cut the feta cheese into squares as well and place them into the salad bowl. If you're vegan, simply leave the feta cheese or use any "fresh-tasting" vegan cheese you can find instead. Add the sunflower seeds on top of everything.
- For the dressing, take a small jar and add mustard, salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon & balsamico vinagre. Close the jar & shake. Once you're happy with the consistency & taste simply pour over the salad. Mix well, serve & enjoy.
The dressing I use is my standard dressing, so you’ll find it in most of my recipes. If you eat a lot of salad during the week, you can make a bigger portion and store it in the jar in your fridge for a week or so.
