Witlof (Belgian Endive) Salad

Witlof (Belgian Endive) Salad

In the United States Belgian endive is considered to be a gourmet and expensive vegetable, I paid for 4 pieces of Belgian Endive $4.97. I don’t eat it as often as I would like to, simply because you will not find them in the regular grocery store like Walmart or Kroger. I spotted these in the Whole Foods Store.
Belgian Endive can be used raw in salads or cooked. In the Netherlands, Belgian endive is an inexpensive, commonly consumed winter and spring vegetable and used most often in hot preparations and on occasion raw in salads. My favorite is the way my mom used to make it. The leaves are crunchy and slightly bitter

I’ve never had the opportunity to eat @ Famous Dave. But I saw this on the Food Channel and I just had to try this. The info what was given on the tv show and a little but of my own tasting and testing this is what I came up with. The salad dressing is actually the same way my mother used to make, home made salad dressing. On the Tv show no mustard was used and peanuts were used instead of the walnuts.
