    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 small radicchio, leaves separated and torn into small pieces
    • 2 heads Belgian endive, leaves separated and torn into small pieces
    • 1 small frisee, tough stems removed and torn into small pieces
    • 1 bunch rocket, torn into small pieces (or roka)
    • 1 tart green apple, such as granny smith,peel left on,thinly sliced
    • 1 sweet red apple, such as fuji,peel left on,thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted
    • 2 cups parmesan cheese, curls (or more)



    1. 1
      Have previously washed your lettuces and spun dry, or put in a large, clean pillow case and swung over your head for a few seconds (this really works! The centrifugal force gets the water off the leaves and the pillow case absorbs it- don't let anyone see you doing this- they'll think you're insane).
    2. 2
      Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
    3. 3
      Combine the lettuces in a large bowl and toss well.
    4. 4
      Add the apples and nuts and drizzle with the dressing.
    5. 5
      Toss again.
    6. 6
      Using a vegetable peeler or sharp paring knife, shave curls off if a wedge of parmesan over the top (be generous!).
    7. 7
      Serve at once as the lettuce will start to wilt with time.

      This is a very nice salad. I used toasted almonds in place of walnuts. I loved the tartness of the salad dressing with the sweetness of the apples. Simple and lovely. Thank you evelyn!

      A wonderful combination of ingredients. I did cheat a bit, using a similar vinaigrette but otherwise made the salad as directed. Loved the parmesan curls.
