This chicken endive salad makes for a wonderful twist on your usual salad.

Belgian endive is a fabulous vegetable. While it’s definitely bitter, it’s flavor is wonderful when balanced with other ingredients. It has a very specific flavor all it’s own, but is not dissimilar from arugula. Endive can be eaten cooked or raw and can be enjoyed in either sweet or savory dishes. It pairs nicely with sweet fruits and makes for a unique salad at any time of day.

Endive Nutrition

While there are several types of endive, they all have good amounts of nutrients. And lets face it, it’s always good to eat an array of foods to be sure you are getting enough vitamins and minerals directly from your food.

At only 87 calories per head, it’s a pretty good nutritional investment. Just one head of endive is a good source of Vitamin E, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a great source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Folate, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese.

It’s not terribly pricey either. I picked up a package of 3 endive for about $1.79 at Trader Joe’s. Not a bad deal for all that nutrition!

What Does Endive Taste Like?

Belgian endive is a bit on the bitter side with a nice crunch. When eaten raw, it’s best to offset the bitterness with other flavors, either sweet or savory.

What Can I Substitute For Endive?

Good substitutes for Belgian endive are radicchio or arugula.
