    Cookgirl's Note:

    From npr.org. Artistic yet easy. For a vegan version substitute agave for the honey. I gave the salad more of a Middle Eastern flavor with the addition of rose water in the dressing. To avoid confusion, the endive called for in this recipe refers to the cone-shaped variety (looks like a bullet or small ear of corn.) I used a head of white endive with the maroon/purple colored outer leaves.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Dressing

    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar (I used unseasoned brown rice vinegar)
    • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
    • 2 teaspoons honey, softened to whisk easier
    • 1/2 teaspoon rose water, to taste (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    Salad

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *Note: specifically the [inner white] stalks of celery plus the leaves. The celery stalks are thinly sliced on a diagonal.
    2. 2
      Tip: To make slicing the Medjools easier, run your knife under hot water before slicing.
    3. 3
      For the dressing, whisk all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
    4. 4
      To make individual salad stacks, place radish slices in a circle in the middle of a salad plate.
    5. 5
      Then build up as you go, adding oranges slices, endive slices, celery slices and leaves, dates, pistachios (or pecans) and fresh mint leaves. Repeat with remaining three dishes.
    6. 6
      Drizzle with dressing, and garnish with orange zest, celery leaves and fresh mint.

      yum!! everyone but THE PICKY ONE loved this! she drank the dressing. ;) I don't have medjool dates so i used 'regular' dates. I also used pecans. I didn't notice the rosewater or the mint so much. I love the contrasts between the sharp radish, slightly bitter endive, crunchy pecans, soft dates, sweet oranges.... made for NA/ME Tag. Thank you! :)
