Tired of the same old greens in your salad recipe? Belgian endive serves up a new twist.


  • 2 large red grapefruits
  • 8 cups baby arugula
  • 2 ripe avocados, cored, peeled, and thinly sliced
  • 1 small head Belgian endive, cut crosswise into 1∕2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 ounces herb and garlic goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Peel grapefruits and remove pith. Hold grapefruits over a bowl and remove sections by slicing along membranes; let juice collect in bowl. Divide grapefruit sections, arugula, avocado, endive, onion, and goat cheese among four plates. In a small jar, combine oil, vinegar, grapefruit juice, zest, mustard, salt, and pepper until blended. Drizzle over salads.
