This salad from Yotam Ottolenghi's newest cookbook, Plenty More, has a lot going on and everything going for it. A beautiful mix of grains, crunchy almonds and pine nuts, chewy dried cherries, silky onions, and enlivening arugula, basil and tarragon—every bite is fairly dazzling.
I modeled this salad after one of my own great secret weaknesses: iceberg lettuce with blue cheese dressing The big difference here, of course, is that endive has much more flavor than iceberg, which has more texture than flavor The bitter edge of the endive is soothed by the sharp blue cheese dressing, and the combination is set off by the small apple dice that garnishes the wedges.
