Black Radish, Red Endive, and Apple Salad Recipe

Servings: 4
Total time: 15 minutes


for the dressing:
⅔ cup|150 ml cider vinegar
2 tablespoons runny honey
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 small cinnamon sticks
3 tablespoons olive oil
coarse sea salt and black pepper, to taste

for the salad:
8 ounces|2 small Cox or Pink Lady apples
10 ½ ounces|6 red or white Belgian endives, trimmed, leaves separated and core removed
7 ounces black radish or black or white turnip, sliced 1 to 2 mm thick on a mandoline
½ ounce parsley, coarsely chopped


  1. Start with the dressing. Place the vinegar, honey, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the reduction is thick and syrupy and there is 3 ½ tablespoons left. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool before removing the cinnamon stick and whisking in the olive oil, along with a scant ½ teaspoon of salt and a good grind of black pepper.

  1. Quarter and core the apples just before serving, then slice them thinly (1 to 2 mm), lengthwise. Place in a large bowl and add the endive, radish, and parsley. Pour over the dressing, toss everything together, and serve.
