Pecan And Endive Salad

Pecan And Endive Salad

Tired of romaine lettuce or spinach in your side salad? Branch out and try two types of different leafy greens — endive and Boston lettuce greens. Boston or butter lettuce is great for wraps because it’s flexible, yet durable enough to stuff with ingredients. Endive leaves are scoop-shaped and are great for stuffing, too.

These crunchy lettuce varieties provide the base for a sweet red apple, grapes and crunchy pecans. The creamy mayo-based dressing provides fat and allows fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamins A, D, E, and K) to be properly absorbed by the body.

This salad would be ideal for a vegetarian eater. Or, toss in a side of protein like chicken or salmon to turn this salad into a tasty lunch.
