    from "Bistro Cooking" by Patricia Wells

    This is one of my favorite wintertime salads: crunchy Belgian endive, freshly cracked walnuts, and piquant Roquefort, all tossed in a lemony dressing of fragrant hazelnut oil. When I prepare this salad, I like to toss it in a huge glass salad bowl, leaving the Belgian endive leaves whole. It makes the salad a bit harder to eat – your guests will have to slice the salad greens themselves – but I love the way the nuts and cheese sort of get captured inside the leaves, making for a lovely burst of flavor when you come upon the trio in a single bite! While Roquefort is the traditional cheese used in this classic bistro salad, you might enjoy Fourme d'Ambert, a blue that I find is creamier and often more full-flavored. At the charming Paris bistro Chardenoux, they offer the classic version, with plenty of Roquefort and walnuts in olive oil dressing.

    6 servings

    2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup best-quality hazelnut oil or extra-virgin olive oil
    2 pounds Belgian endive (about 6 endives)
    1 cup best-quality or organic walnut pieces
    6 ounces imported French Roquefort or Fourme d'Ambert cheese, crumbled

    1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and salt and stir to blend. Add the oil and stir to blend. Adjust the seasoning; set the dressing aside.
    2. Separate the endive leaves; wash the endive in several changes of water and pat them dry. Place the whole leaves in a large salad bowl. Sprinkle on the walnuts and crumbled cheese.
    3. Pour on the dressing and toss. Check for salt. Serve immediately.
