  • 2 oz. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. whole-grain or coarse-grain mustard
  • 4 oz. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 8 oz. mixed salad greens
  • 2 Belgian endives, cut in 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup beets, thinly sliced (precooked or steamed)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
Whisk vinegar, mustard, olive oil, and lemon juice to create dressing. Add pepper and a pinch of salt if desired. In a large salad bowl, combine salad greens, endive, cauliflower, beets, and walnuts. Pour dressing over salad a little bit at a time while tossing, being careful not to saturate salad with dressing. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling. Serves 6.
