Chicory salad with blue cheese dressing
- Preparation and cooking time
- No cook
- Serves 8
The chicory gives a bitter contrast to the richness of the cheese in this sophisticated salad recipe
For the dressing
- STEP 1
Slice the base off each chicory and peel off the leaves until you reach the core, which you can either cut into quarters or leave whole. Arrange the leaves on a platter.
- STEP 2
Drizzle the chicory with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Crumble half the blue cheese over the chicory, then mix the remaining cheese with the vinegar, squashing with a fork to make it creamy. Add the cream, lemon juice and crème fraîche, then whisk together. Adjust the seasoning, spoon over the salad and serve.
