Curly Endive & Broccoli Salad with Raisins in Avocado Sauce

Standard

Looks like our Kale & Avacado Salad‘s cousin, right? It’s very similar in appearance, but the taste is very different. The raisins give it a great sweetness and the endive isn’t quite as bitter as the kale. This is one of John’s favorite dishes, and I love making it because it’s really easy to make, but packed with nutrition!

1 bunch curly endive (aka chicory)

1 large head broccoli, steamed (2-3 cups into florets)

2 avocados

1 cup shredded carrots

2/3 cup raisins

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1/2 cup red onions, sliced

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Toss together endive, broccoli, carrots, onions and walnuts
  • In a blender, combine avocados, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper and blend until smooth and creamy
  • Stir sauce into the endive mix and serve
