This warm side pairs beautifully with this week’s frittata or risotto.
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon sugar
6 tablespoons walnut oil
¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Trim the bottoms off the endive and cut each in half lengthwise. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss to evenly coat and arrange the endive cut-side down. Roast until tender and browned in spots, about 25 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, make the vinaigrette: In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, and sugar. Slowly whisk in the walnut oil to emulsify. Stir in the toasted walnuts and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
4. Transfer the endive to a serving platter and spoon vinaigrette over top.
