Orange Endive Salad

Olive oil is known to have lots of benefits because of its healthy fats and antioxidants, such as improving our cardiovascular function. These health benefits make extra virgin olive oil a wonderful addition to our meals. The stability of the oil when it is in storage and while cooking allows us to include it in all types of meal preparations.
It is also important to know more about the quality and origin of this oil we use everyday. Learn more on how to Flavour Your Life with this healthy delicious oil.

Here is an easy to make delicious Orange endive salad adapted from Fresh Italian cooking book by Academia Barilla.
 
2 medium oranges
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 head endive thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the peel and white membrane from the oranges, then slice the fruit into segments. In a bowl, whisk the juice that dripped from the oranges with the lemon juice, salt, pepper and olive oil. Toss the sliced endive with the dressing and serve.

  3. I love this simple salad - bright citrus - crunchy slightly bitter endive - a grand match. And olive oil - I've been known to smooth it on my face and in my hair... yes, I'm Italian!
