Orange Salad with Belgian Endive and Pomgranate
INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 2
  • 2 oranges (red Sicilian ones if you can get your hands on them)
  • Belgian endive
  • 1 pomgranate
  • chive
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Separate the leaves of the Belgian endive, wash them and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  2. Cut the pomgranate in half and take the arils out.
  3. Peel the orange: cut the top and the bottom, cut off the skin with the knife removing the white skin as well. Delicatly separate the slices from the internal membrane inserting a knife between the two. Collect the juice while doing all this.
  4. Arrange the Belgian endive leaves on a plate, place 2-3 slices of orange in each (my endive was small and the orange big, so I put only one), place the pomgranate arils in the middle.
  5. Mix the EVOO with the orange juice you collected while cutting the orange, salt to taste, mix well and pour over the salad. Complete with some finely chopped chive
