This salad is a perfect complement to any cheese plate. It is a great palate cleanser after cheese and is also a fantastic option when topped with cheese.
Endives make for an elegant edible serving surface. In addition, the bitter taste of this winter vegetable complements the sweet and tart apple salad and the smooth and tangy flavor of cheese. Endive is rich in many vitamins and minerals, especially in folate and vitamins A and K, and is also high in fiber.
